Sr. Thecla and I had a full day at the First Communion. Our little friend was one of 150 at the parish today; another 150 children received their First Communion there last week. Given Chicago's traffic, we didn't get home until 5:30. It was when setting the ribbons in my Liturgy of the Hours that I realized we were already at the sixth Sunday of Easter! Good Heavens, that means we are in Ascension week! And just two weeks from Pentecost! I'm hoping to prepare a kind of Pentecost novena for the blog, even though I have several other things in the works. It's just too significant a day in the Church to let pass; not even the first Pentecost happened without a novena, after all.
In just a few days we also begin the month of May. I have another idea I'd like to do for May, but I really "may" have to put that one on hold until next year. (I wish these things wouldn't keep happening!) The upcoming month is more than full already: I am commmited to giving three talks on St. Paul, to singing for a wedding, preparing a video "lecture" on our Founder for a meeting of the sisters this summer, and... we have our official every-six-years visit from Mother General in May, as well.
One day at a time, as they say!
