Time to go home after my ordination trip to KC, MO.
During this trip I saw Bp Robert Finn ordain the son of a friend of many years, who was on the staff of the Catholic Forum in Compuserve, back in the days of DOS commands. Kansas City has several great new priests now.
I promised a boy who reads the blog some food photos.
Here is a sample of from the ordination supper.
Gorgonzola vinaigrette… slightly quirky but engaging. The lardons were made in house. There could have been a few more… but there is never enough bacon.
Classy. The filet was as tender has any I have ever had.
For the curious, yes, we had excellent BBQ the evening of the first Mass.
I was able to get around in style this time. The rental company gave me a Challenger. Quite a contrast to my daily ride home. It sounded wonderful and it is as fast as it looks.
The new priest had a distinguished homilist for his first Mass: His Excellency Most Rev. Robert C Morlino, the Extraordinary Ordinary of Madison!
I’ll be off again for another ordination in a few days.
I saw a mother dealing with a tyke, probably just at walking age, in a complete meltdown. From what I saw, the older daughter provoked it. How challenging it must be to travel with small children.
Then they got on my flight.
Is “happy” the tone?
I wonder if most people know what Memorial Day is about.
Judging from the ultracrepidarian prattle on TV you get the impression that those with a vague notion that the holiday involves something military, many don’t know the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day (hint: some are no longer alive).
