I am with a gang of priests for our annual get together.
There may be a little less going on with the blog for a few days.
This morning I gave a conference to the crew on causes of saints. We will also have conferences on Islam and perhaps also how priests can have recourse to the Sacra Penitenzieria Apostolica in Rome concerning internal forum matters.
I am doing the cooking, though in a simpler way than last year. A few of the members will join us for just part of the time.
Last year we enjoyed developing some possible episcopal mottos. One that we have generated so far is: imminutum a prudentia.
UPDATE 24 July:
We have been sampling bars.
Here, for example, are the remains of some exceptionally good lemon bars brought by one of the brethren. Once they were sampled, I was hard pressed to get one. But I managed.
Last night I made a couple pork loins, one in a teriyaki marinade and the other marinaded in cherries. They were accompanied by brown rice and steamed broccoli. Dessert: the aforementioned bars. There may have even been some wine and other adult beverages.
Tonight we will have something I have written about before: spaghetti al seminario, which always disappears. Green salad and lemon meringue pie or ice cream with various enhancers. There may even be some wine and other adult beverages. We shall see.
This morning we had the first of a series of presentations on Islam, brilliantly delivered and fascinating. Priests should put effort into learning something about Islam.
