Yesterday, as usual, involved hundreds of miles of travel, first bringing a parishioner who is poor and alone in this part of the world to the doctor (always far far away), and then chasing off to a Confirmation in a nearby parish (itself 100 miles round trip). It was edging toward 2:00 AM by the time I got home and after 3:00 by the time I got to bed. Up again at 5:00 for the day! Today promises to be just as busy. But I’m not tired. Why not?
There were a dozen confirmandi, all wearing roses the color of the fiery flames of Divine Charity Holy Spirit red, the color, of course, of the vestments for the Mass. As you might imagine, there were meetings afterward. Very wonderful indeed. The Holy Spirit was very evident at Holy Mass and very very evident at the meetings. Come Holy Spirit!
