A breather

I’ve had some email wondering why I haven’t been posting very much.

Sometimes I need a little breather. The problems with my laptop slowed me down a bit and … well … I get a little burned out.

It is beautiful outside today.

I’m going for a little drive. Perhaps I’ll listen to my book about Dietrich Bonhoeffer.


A travel mug with a certain coffee would be perfect! Nicht wahr?

Don’t forget to VOTE for this blog today, and I wouldn’t mind a Memorare.

    Memorare: done (gladly). Enjoy your day out and your respite. You deserve it.

    Just finished reading Bonhoeffer last night. I hope you enjoy
    some quiet reading time Father.

  3. wanda says:

    Memorare on it’s way. I just got the Bonhoeffer book, haven’t started it just yet. Take a breather, Fr. Z.

  4. EucharistLove says:

    Memorare done. A lot of good people praying for you, Fr. Have a rest.

  5. Mariana says:

    Done. And take all the breathers you need, Father!

    Memorare done. Rest well.

    Done. This a.m. Recently began doing a daily Memorare for the Holy Father, a couple of Cardinals and 3 priests by name, then others generally, including Bishops, unless other names pop into my head at the time. You are one of the 3 priests. In this way Catechesis, Fatima, and the Liturgy are covered, and things become more hopeful!

    Take a break whenever you need one Father Z. I wish you would take us on another trip with you to London or NYC again. I know it’s Lent but perhaps a nice dinner with photos for us to enjoy.
    Memorare after this post.

    Do thou vouchsafe to go play outside! And may your fortune cookie have a fortune and not a platitude.

    Memorare: prayed!

  10. BarefootPilgrim says:

    Memorare done! Rest in Jesus and Mary, Padre.

  11. Liz says:

    You are very much in my prayers, Father!

  12. Memorare prayed! and in keeping with the theme of this fantastic blog you run, in Latin ; – )

    Take the breather, Father, take it! It is also helping us (me) your audience to remember the world away from the computer screen.

    Prayed a Memorare, Father, and voted today as well. Rest up, enjoy some down time!!

    Today was a beautiful day to stop. It was primary day in MA but you’d never know it by driving by voting precincts in this city. More workers than voters where I went. Someone said it was slow, but steady. March to November is going to be wrought with anxiety from the onslaught of no-real-sense news feeds, I think. Lenten devotion seems like standing on a rug that keeps getting pulled out from under. More so than during Advent when we listened to the roaring getting into full voices from all quarters. Will keep you good Priests and Bishops in prayer for guard along with the Church. Lentcasts are good part of each day, thank you.

    Oh, the ‘reading’ line up: I have always wished that the title was “Crime, then Punishment”.

    Memorare said.

  18. jflare says:

    You get a little burned out? I’m amazed that didn’t happen months ago!

    We still love you, Father, and we’ll be eagerly awaiting your next postings!

    Uh, I don’t believe I ever actually learned a Memorare……..*coughs*
    Maybe I can Google it…

  19. Uncledan says:

    Memorae… check!

  20. irishgirl says:

    Just sent up a Memorare for you, Father Z!
    I pray for you every day in my Rosary-an ‘extra’ Hail Mary tacked on at the end has your name on it (along with several other priests and seminarians who are ‘dear to my heart’).
    Take all the time you need to rest and recharge your spiritual batteries-we, your ‘online flock’, love and support you!

    A breather! Phew! Father- you take a breather, but then you make so many posts that they’re all not even on the first page if I’m away for 24 hours!
