It's been more than a month since my last post because there is just not much to report! We have our regular routine - prayer, class/study and work (along with eating and sleeping, of course)... which is what we have been doing during these past 5 weeks.
I had a new experience yesterday. I've played golf maybe 15-20 times in my life. In golf you are supposed to replace/repair your divots (a divot being that chunk of ground that flies into the air after some shots in the fairway and the mark made by a ball landing on the green [I did not have to worry about them too often!]). Yesterday, we replaced the LARGE divots what were removed from our ground by the large machinery which pushed snow around on our property for the past 3 months. A unique and interesting experience for me!
Lent continues... 2 weeks from Holy Thursday and the beginning of the sacred Triduum (3 days - Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday)!! I hope that you had a spiritually profitable Lent. Not having parish duties (for the first time in 19 years) during this time has been a blessing, which I look forward to as Holy Week approaches!
