The Next Step in the Journey

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.

Congratulations. Good scholars are so very important to the Church and we have so few of them.

I will keep you in my prayers.

Wow! Awesome. YOu just NEVER know, do you? My thoughts and prayers are with you. Definitely going to be a much different audience than your day-to-day parishoners.

On a side note, will you have a replacement to continue the Tridentine Liturgy at your parish?

While I will be sad if this means you will no longer be able to maintain your blog, I think that is wonderful, and you will continue to be in my prayers! God bless you... and THANK YOU!
