Sunday: “How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat?”
Monday: He went away sad, for he had many possessions.
I did not post yesterday, because now I take a complete sabbath from the Internet on the Sabbath. Otherwise, I would have marked the first anniversary of From a Brother, which debuted on Aug. 19, 2011. Thank you, faithful readers, for continuing to follow the story God is spinning with my soul!
Yesterday: Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows, a Jesuit-run parish in Santa Barbara. Following coffee, donuts, and conversation with the parishioners, headed to Old Mission Santa Ines for the annual fiesta that is the major fundraiser for the historic mission. A bright, almost hot afternoon, popcorn and tri-tip sandwiches, and covers of Beatles and Buffalo Springfield tunes. Had a good time with the brothers and even won at the ring toss. Two of our novice brothers were caught by the public eye of the Santa Barbara News-Press, and subscribers can see what the photographer saw of them on today's front page.
This morning: resuming our lessons on liturgy. This afternoon: continuing production of The Caperone following a morning with my co-editor and the formator who is our editorial supervisor. No choral practice this evening ... sigh. We will opt for prayerful silence instead of musical silence.
Cool and clear.
