After arriving at Charlotte airport, on the shuttle bus to the parking lot, I got a call from two great priests who were there to intercept me on my way to the hermitage and take me out to dinner at the expense of one of the best priests in Charlotte (and that’s saying something). They’re old friends, and we had a great meal and an inspiring chat, catching up on old times. What a great way to cap off the day coming back from Washington, D.C. All in all, an excellent couple of days.
But now I’m back in the hermitage. The rest of the breviary is done. Mass is offered. Jesus has been enthroned back in the tabernacle. A new sanctuary candle has been lit. A fire has been started. The chickens were inspected and are doing well. Laudie-dog was fed and is very content under the wood stove. I’m ready to go to sleep.
