Have you ever wondered what a priest does all day? Ask my father, and he'll tell you we only work on weekends...so he'd surely be pleased to see my Saturday line up:
6:30am Get up, shower, do laundry, eat breakfast, pray
10:00am Funeral Mass [St. Joseph's Church]
11:45am Anointing in the ICU (emergency pager went off as I was leaving the cemetery)
12:05pm Confessions start 5 minutes late [Notre Dame Church]
1:00pm Wedding Ceremony [Notre Dame Church]
3:00pm Confessions [St. Joseph's Church]
4:00pm Grocery shop
5:00pm Baptism [St. Joseph's Church]
6:00pm Supper (cook first, then eat)
Whew! The sacramentally astute will note that that's five sacraments in the twelve hours or so listed there. Grace was just a-flowin' around here!
Viva il Papa! But now I want to go to bed...
