Since another priest offered the Vigil Mass in my parish, away I went for a “day off” – from late Friday night until early Sunday morning. The “day off” was to consist of reading two child protection books. Some “day off” that would be, right? There’s really never a “day off” for me. But instead, I was distracted the entire time by the priest of the parish where I went, so that we again solved all the problems of the Church and the world. I ended up saying one of his two vigil Masses. He’s saying the second one as I write this. Then we’re going to grill up a steak. He used to work in a restaurant, which is so very different from me scrounging around dumpsters! (Hat tip to elizdelphi for reminding me of this the other day).
Anyway, I have to confess, I just have way too much fun preaching. I can’t help it. I love speaking about the Living Truth, how much He loves us. I love the Gospels. I love being a priest. Pray for vocations who will also have way too much fun preaching. That’s a good flower for the Immaculate Conception.
