Good Friday

  • Morning Prayer at home.
  • Took Brenda to yet another healthcare appointment.
  • Sent greetings via email to one of our priests who has to live this year with the cognitive dissonance of having his birthday fall on Good Friday. Of course, in as many years, if falls on Easter, most likely.
  • Spent an hour in prayer and reflection in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on the Altar of Repose, and in the desolation of the nave and sanctuary of the cathedral.
  • Came home at lunchtime. Habits are hard to break on a fast day. Worked from there the rest of the day.
  • Opened a file on a sermon for Easter VI, April 29 at the Chapel of St John the Divine in Champaign. Took a first pass at the readings. Made some notes.
  • Took care of some routine time-of-the-month chores related to my calendar.
  • Responded to some late-arriving emails.
  • Greeted our younger daughter and her family, in for the weekend from the Twin Cities. They arrived hungry, so we took them to Popeye's for some chicken.
  • Headed off with Brenda to the cathedral for the solemn liturgy of Good Friday. I presided this time, while the Dean preached.
