... until I have finished giving....
Genesis 28:15 (New Living Translation)
Continuing Johnson and her Miryam series.
And now, the final issue of The Caperone of the 2012-13 Capuchin novitiate.
Doing a "deep cleaning" of my bedroom and the neighboring guest room: that is the main chore of the day. Later this afternoon, meeting with one of the formators to leave him some basic information about the prison ministry. Also, recording a video in chapel with a few other novices from the schola of a meditation we performed last October on the eve of the feast of Saint Francis. Titled "Transitus," it is a Capuchin original, with the lyrics by one of our formators and the music by a friar of the Province of Saint Augustine. We performed the piece again yesterday as a communion meditation, and we will sing it for the two California province novices making their profession this Saturday. Everyone loves the chorus, which is enchanting and haunting. I will post the lyrics soon, but not yet ... it will be most appropriate to post them Saturday, on the day I leave California. When you read them, you will know why.
We've got that heat! But I've got it beat.
