A Busy One

Today was a busy one.  It was supposed to be a “sleep in” (not setting an alarm) kind of day for me.  However, I had both morning Masses instead as the Carmelite Fathers are in quarantine right now.  Our chapel was full at the 6:30 a.m. Mass because people who usually go to the Carmelite Shrine came to our parish as the shrine is also closed for a week due to their quarantine.

I had the 9:00 a.m. Mass as well.  That was followed by a fair amount of office work until I left around 11:00 a.m. to take Fr. Brian out to lunch for his birthday.  Happy Birthday, Brian!

After lunch, we headed to the Pastoral Center for a Priests’ Council meeting.  It began at 1:00 p.m. and finished just shy of 3:00 p.m.  When it was finished, I came home and did a little more office work.

Then, I came back to the house and turned on my television.  I went to YouTube and selected a video of quiet classical music against a background of a crackling fireplace.  All the ambience and none of the smoke.  Ah, what bliss.  🙂
