Wednesday (St Gregory the Great)

  • More or less still reeling from the shock of yesterday’s news … and still trying to keep upper respiratory crud at bay.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Spent some time with Bonnie, the part-time secretary in the cathedral office, just talking through some emergent issues. Since it was Fr Roderick’s habit to personally prepare the Sunday service programs, I had to poke around his computer to retrieve and edit the documents for this Sunday and send them over to Bonnie.
  • Prepared the chapel for the 12:15 Mass.
  • Took care of some administrivia via email.
  • Devoted the rest of the morning to bringing into final form my notes for tonight’s Lenten series presentation at St John’s, Decatur (the series is called Unpacking Lent).
  • Went to the chapel for the midday Mass, but there were no takers.
  • Lunch from Taco Gringo, eaten at home.
  • Remained at home to work there through the afternoon. Spent most of it pulling together a rough draft of the service booklet for Fr Roderick’s funeral liturgy. In parish ministry, I was rather adept at this sort of work, but I’ve grown rusty. I got it done, though.
  • After attending to a couple more administrative matters, I hopped in the YFNBmobile and pointed it east toward Decatur. Attended the Mass, enjoyed a bite to eat, and delivered myself of about a 45-minute talk on the historical origins of Lent.
