Today's activities exemplify what I dearly love about serving in the pastoral office: the variety of tasks that present themselves each day. That, and what an honor to accompany the people of God in their earthly pilgrimage with the unspeakable comfort of the Word and prayer and the Sacraments of Christ! It's the sort of day that I thank God for putting this most unworthy sinner into the office that preaches the reconciliation.
