Generally, I do not take my days off. I know, I know. I need to. But, for someone like me, what’s easy to say is not as easy to do. However, today, I decided that I was going to go to St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois to take our five seminarians out to dinner.
I always leave a little early and spend some time in prayer next door to St. Mary of the Lake at Marytown. It’s a great place that offers perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. They have a wonderful gift shop and also a museum dedicated to the memory of Maximilian Kolbe.
We are supposed to be going to Jimmy’s Charhouse in Libertyville tonight. Steak! What can go wrong with that? Nothing. 🙂
Kindly keep our seminarians there, as well at other schools, in your prayers. We need all the men that we can get to consider the priesthood! Click here to see the men currently studying for the Diocese of Gary. It will give a face to the names of the men for whom you are praying.
I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do after Mass. If I’m tired and want to rest, I might just stay at a hotel in Libertyville and come back tomorrow morning. Otherwise, I’ll come home tonight and sleep in tomorrow. Tomorrow’s going to be a busy day. I have a consultors’ meeting at the chancery in the morning followed by a priests’ council meeting in the afternoon.
See you tomorrow! Right now, I’m Mundelein bound . . .
