And another month goes
and another month goes
and another month bites the dust.
Time inexorably marches on, does it not, with or without our consent. I cannot believe that it is now October. Not only can I not believe it; but, I am not ready for it either. There are only three months left to the year and so much happens in these next three months.
Next month, in November, I will have to go to Baltimore to attend the annual United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. That should be a real hoot. In early December, I will spend a couple of days in Indianapolis finally meeting the bishops with whom I have been working via email. The week after our Indiana provincial meeting, I will find myself in Rome for our meetings with the Pope.
All of this is very surreal. Many of my priesthood assignments were assignments that I would never have predicted (or picked) for myself. I have always gone as the Spirit has led. But leading to a meeting with the pope in Rome? Weo.
The only good thing about time flying is that my annual trip to Disney approaches.
