Saturday (Consecration of Samuel Seabury)
Well, the consecration of Samuel Seabury took place on this date in 1783, but today it was the consecration of George Sumner as Bishop of Dallas (#1090, with Seabury bring #1--YFNB is # 1056). It was a 2 1/2 hour liturgy, but splendid from beginning to end. It was my honor to be one of the primary co-consecrators. I have quite a few friends in the Diocese of Dallas, so there were lots of mini- reunions. Because of the vicissitudes of the airline schedules, I am here another whole day, taking the last flight to Springfield tomorrow night.
