I am, oh joy, at the annual diocesan assembly of priests. Always, enlightening.
Speaking of enlightening, the subject of altar “servers” wearing blinky light shoes came up.
Have you seen those? With every step a light flashes?
Where I am these days, that would be unthinkable. As a matter of fact it hasn’t ever come into my head that that might occur. I’ve seen them, but not in church… where I am.
Blinky light shoes.
One of the priests here has a closet in the sacristy with shelves and shelves of black dress shoes in every conceivable size. That takes care of any potential footwear issues.
“Sorry, we can’t have those here. Flashing lights can trigger seizures and our insurance doesn’t cover that.”
BTW… we have John Bergsma talking on Biblical Theology of Priesthood, so I don’t have to do Sudokus.
