I feel as if my life is going way too fast right now. There has been so much happening at the parish and the diocese and it is hard to keep a hold of it all. To add to the chaos, there are several funerals this week. I have three of them and Fr. Declan has two. I also have Mass for the deceased bishops, priests, and deacons of the diocese Thursday morning and an “event” for CSA Major givers Thursday evening.
On Sunday, November 10, after my 6:30 and 8:00 a.m. Masses, I leave for Baltimore for the week. I will be attending the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Annual Conference.
When I get back, I will have three weeks to prepare to leave for Rome for the bishops’ Ad Limina visit with the Holy Father. I am so not ready for that. Where’s a new bishop when you need one?! 🙂
So, aside from my sinuses and arthritis killing me, my nerves are on raw ends as I think ahead. The more I think, the less I sleep. Ah, me. Such is life.
I am keeping my sights set on January 5th. If I can survive the USCCB and the Ad Limina and Advent Penance Services and Christmas/New Year’s, I will be going for my annual R&R at Disney. Come on, January! Everything is such a rush right now.
