Well, you’re always first in our book, Father.
[Sappy mode OFF]
Do we have to mention “and the last shall be first”? No, I didn’t think so… I’d be ecstatic to see such a list in my parish bulletin (they’re not bad but nowhere near this good either).
Peter: You can always make sure your parish priest gets a copy. Maybe he will print it.
Fr. Z: I would, but unfortunately our Pastor has had to retire due to age and health reasons and we’re unlikely to see a new Pastor appointed until some time right around Easter. We currently have a retired priest in “partial” residence but that’s about it.
Our entire sacramental life is kind of ad hoc right now – I don’t blame anyone involved as they’re all doing what they can with very limited resources, but it has been hard on all of us. It has given a rather interesting perspective on Lenten sacrifice, and perhaps, we hope, created a greater hunger for a more full sacramental life when our new pastor is appointed. I hope he likes Latin! And maybe, just maybe, good music…
Well, Fr. Z, that’s why I have my link list in *reverse* alphabetical order. As a fellow end-of-the-alphabeter in real life, I commiserate. ;)
