Wednesday (St Kentigern, aka Mungo)

  • Took are of some routine monthly calendar tasks, and began preparing for the noon Mass (had to bone up on St Kentigern, founder of Glasgow) while still at home.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Continued and completed Mass preparations.
  • Prayed over and took an initial pass at the readings for Lent II, which I will have to preach on St Paul's, Pekin. (Yes, when I do a from-scratch sermon, there's a long gestation period.)
  • Attended to some chores that will eventually collude to make corporate worship happen at the pre-Lenten clergy retreat next month. One of them involved dusting off my familiarity with a music publishing app called Finale, which sucked up a disproportionate amount of time.
  • Presided and preached at the midday liturgy.
  • Lunch from La Bamba ("burritos as big as your head," but I had a smaller one), eaten at home.
  • Responded to a few fresh emails before re-engaging preparation for delivering three addresses at the clergy retreat.
  • Met for an hour or so with a priest who is in the diocese as a finalist for one of our parishes in transition.
  • Returned to retreat preparation, and completed the second of my three addresses.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
