The interesting thing about Easter week every year is that is it filled with a certain amount of exhaustion. After preaching Missions and retreats two weeks in a row, and then celebrating solidly since last Wednesday's penance service, it is time to rest, relax and savor the memories of the recent triduum. My voice is just a bit raspy from all that singing.

The intensity of Easter is supposed to remain, as each day this week is a celebartion of Easter. Somehow that is just a bit inhuman. My voice says that there has been quite a bit of singing, so give me a rest. Still I can help but keep humming some of those tunes. The radio seems like an intrusion this week.

So I am still in "take a break" mode. I head to St. Louis on Thursday, and to Fort Wayne on Friday. There is a Retrouvaille this weekend so I am going to rest up for it. Blessed (and restful) Easter week for all!
