Actually, I wish that were the case.
Instead, I was at the church at 4:45 a.m. to open up for morning Masses. I did not have the 6:30 or 8:00 a.m. Masses, visiting priests did because Fr. Andrew is on vacation. I had the 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon. Instead of going to the house and resting up again after opening, I remained in my office and began working feverishly on the Daily Reflections for the two week period that I will be away on vacation.
By the time of the 12:00 Noon Mass, I had all the reflections written through Sunday, November 11th. Woo Hoo!!!
After the Noon Mass, I had three baptisms. Two of them were for the children of parents that I brought into the Church last year through the RCIA program. That was very exciting. The third was a young girl who was very excited to be baptized.
This afternoon I was busy gathering things together to pack on Wednesday. I am in “pre-vacation” mode. However, the next few days are going to be busy with both morning Masses each day as well as a funeral tomorrow and Tuesday. I’m going to have to earn my vacation! 🙂
