Finally, after days of confusion, my computer is working. The hunt for the missing alb continues - CBS will soon make it into a mini-series, starring George Clooney as Fr. Owl. Many boxes remain unopened - the frenetic pace of life in these two parishes is somewhat overwhelming - add to that it is in the 90's with extreme humidity. I actually haven't read a word in two weeks, other than my Office and daily Scripture - and the Web, of course! Reading requires concentration and, at the end of the day, eating supper at 9.15pm, I find I have no concentration - it's so easy to turn on fast food for the mind - the tv. Something will have to change! I am also arranging our annual Priests Conference at the beginning of September - I'm looking forward to meeting our speaker, a fellow blogger, Fr. Jay Scott Newman who will speak to our priests about the renewal of the parish through beauty and liturgy - he was featured in George Weigel's excellent book, 'Letters to a Young Catholic.'
