On the Road

Well, I depart in about two hours. The computer is next to be packed. Two of the papers are done. My Provincial had some last minute additions to both of them so I added them late last night. The third Paper is begun and I hope to have it finished before this whole thing begins on Tuesday. It should be the easiest one to write, but it is turning out to be the hardest. There is so much I want to say but I have to limit it to 3000 words, which turns out to be about seven pages, single spaced. I have about two pages done.

The next day will be a little holiday. I saved $300 by flying through Ireland, especially since I will have a two week vacation there with my sister after the Formators School has ended. So I have a 30 hour layover in Dublin, arriving Sunday morning and departing Monday afternoon. I do not plan to work until I get to Rome. I need a break.

I still have the liturgies to prepare for the two days I am responsible for the liturgy. Does anybody have any ideas about what I should include in these liturgies, Morning and Evening Prayer and Eucharist? They should be reflective of a good Catholic experience in America, but also inclusive of the other cultures present. The CPPS priests and brothers attending this School are from 17 countries and we fall into five language groups, Spanish, Italian, German Polish and English.

here is the schedule for the next five weeks.

I arrive in Rome on Monday evening and I will be making daily reports to the Blog from the conference.

The time stamp on the Blog has been changed to reflect Roman time. The Roman weatherpixie has traded places with Chicago for the time being.

More O'Fallon

You can see a hint of the
last picture there on the upperleft, a small detail of the lamb and the staff. Sr. Hiltrudis' artwork is also over the organ pipes. Another aritist did the stations and the medallions
