These January days, lately, are long. Well, they are short in terms of sun light, but you know what I mean. It seems I am not accomplishing anything some days, outside of work. Tomorrow, I have a day off, & I plan on using it to try to catch up on some matters that have been waiting on deck for me.
One of the redeeming aspects of many of these work days is the Mass. Can there be a better way of starting one's day? Last Saturday we had Mass for St. Timothy's Feast. Yesterday, my Polycarpian pastor celebrated Mass on Saint Polycarp's traditional feast. So it was very meaningful for us. Today we have Mass for the feast of St. John Chrysostom (which means I have to get ready to leave soon to catch the bus). And tomorrow we have Mass for Saint Agnes' Second Feast. The sanctoral cycle is alive & well after all. Thank God for His gift of the Blessed Eucharist, and the rich evangelical treasure of the Holy Mass.
