The centerpiece of the day was the Mass of Chrism, at which the clergy of the diocese, along with their bishop, renew their ordination vows, and we bless oils to be used in baptism and the anointing of the sick. Before that event, I participated in part of a Standing Committee meeting, and afterward (and after the lunch for clergy and families), I met with two persons in the ordination path to the diaconate and one of our parish priests. Then I saw to some details pertaining to tomorrow's celebration of Palm Sunday at the cathedral. Got home around 2:30, dead tired.
