Saturday and Sunday:
The angel of the LORD came back a second time, touched Elijah, and ordered,
"Get up and eat, else the journey will be too long for you!"
1 Kings 19:7
I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world."
Praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
His majesty is above earth and heaven.
Continuing Day, On Pilgrimage, and Osborne, Sacramental Theology.
Sunday: Mass at Old Mission Santa Ines. Telephone calls to my mother and brother. Celebrated another novice brother's birthday!
This morning: lessons on liturgy. For the next two weeks, the next six class sessions, we will be studying the history, practice, and theology of worship in the Catholic Church, especially the Liturgy of the Hours and Eucharist, and we will turn our attention to the quality of our worship in this particular Capuchin fraternity.
This afternoon: editing The Caperone.
This evening, choral practice. Later this week, beginning Wednesday and for the next five days, I resume liturgical and kitchen duties.
Cooler and clear.
