The last 10 minutes…

The last 10 minutes…

  • Haydn’s Farewell is playing.
  • Request from a priest via text message for the blessing of beehives.
  • Email from a priest asking about baptizing the child adopted by homosexuals.
  • Delivery of a deep cycle 12v battery.
  • Roast out of the fridge and preparation of the lard.
  • Arranged pick up of new solemn green set.
  • This email….

Dear Father Z

Today I was in NYC & on the spur of the moment (& your encouragement) I stopped at Holy Innocents & went to confession after many many years. I can not describe the feeling afterwards as the wonderful priest gave me absolution. I cried tears of happiness & joy.

Thank you Father!

    Don’t forget to bless that lard…

    “Email from a priest asking about baptizing the child adopted by homosexuals.”

    Would be curious about how priests should handle that situation. “Founded hope” here?

    I am reminded of an online discussion on the last three things ordered from Amazon. In my case:

    – Freeze-dried lamb lung dog treats

    – Siegmund von Hausegger’s Nature Symphony, conducted by Ari Raiselainen

    – A rosary

    Thank you Father for being there to send along the blessing to our priest. Our hives have not survived that last two winters, and I pray that with this blessing they will be hale and hearty next spring!
