Friday (O Emmanuel)

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral chapel (since there were people still putting the finishing touches on Christmas decorations).
  • Responded fairly substantively, and in Spanish, to an email greeting from a Peruvian bishop whose consecration I participated in when I was there in July 2015.
  • Processed some responses to the vetting request I made yesterday about the teaching document on ministry that I've been working on.
  • Responded by email to one of our clergy regarding some parochial concerns.
  • Read and responded to a handful of Ember Day letters from our handful of postulants.
  • Re-registered the YFNBmobile with the Illinois Secretary of State's office.
  • Attended to a small administrative issue pertaining to my Nashotah House duties.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Kept a 1:30 appointment at home with a notary tasked with getting us to sign a stack of documents that signify the closing of a new home mortgage loan. Refinancing was a prudent thing to do at this time.
  • Back at the office, I reviewed the contents of the credenza behind my desk, culling and reorganizing. This is more or less a routine annual chore, the sort of thing that always takes longer than it seems like it should.
  • Took a good long look at a catechetical resource from the Church of England called Pilgrim. There's always a quibble or two, but I rather like it.
  • Friday prayer: the venerable spiritual practice of a "holy hour" spent in the sacramental presence of our Lord in the cathedral.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
