So today I get a letter from the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. After "careful review" of my application, they are offering me admission to the Doctor of Sacred Theology program. The Order asked me to make the application back in the fall. I already checked with my provincial minister, who confirmed that I should accept the offer.
Here I go into transitional mode. Pray for me.
Right now, by Providence, I have to go to the funeral home and so am relieved of the temptation to luxuriate in my anxiety.
