Wednesday (St Justin Martyr)

  • Devotions in the cathedral; Morning Prayer in the office.
  • Conferred with the Archdeacon--and then again several times through the day--on the details of a Letter of Agreement for an impending call to one of our vacant cures.
  • Prepared to preside and preach at the midday Mass.
  • Attended to a couple of pastoral-administrative items, both involving the initiation of a check-preparation process.
  • Met with one of our new postulants for Holy Orders and discussed some of the details of his academic formation.
  • Dashed off an email to the Academic Dean at Nashotah signaling my approval for three of our postulants to be residential students there in the fall.
  • Attended via email to two more pastoral-administrative concerns.
  • Met with yet another individual in the early stages of discernment of a possible vocation to ordination. I've had quite a raft of such conversations lately.
  • Presided and preached at the 12:15 Mass, keeping the lesser feast of St Justin Martyr.
  • Lunch from McD's, eaten at home.
  • Devoted the rest of the afternoon to fleshing out the bare outlines I created last week of my four 40-minute teaching opportunities at the St Michael's Youth Conference week after next. Without using any of this technical language, I'll be attempting to introduce the kids to Christian Anthropology, Epistemology, Revelation, and Apologetics re the Resurrection of Christ. Wish me luck (or, better yet, say a prayer).
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
NOTE: Tomorrow and Friday will be personal time, as Brenda and I have tickets at the Chicago Symphony tomorrow evening ... a new granddaughter to introduce ourselves to for the first time! So I'll check back in here on Saturday night.
