Pardon my absence

I ask readers to pardon my absence for most of this week. I am leading a youth retreat at a monastery. Your prayers for the youth are much appreciated. And remember this sinner. I’ll be back posting Sunday evening. And my thanks for the prayers.

    Don’t forget to have some light-hearted fun too – youngsters keep all of us on our toes. Ah…but as George Bernard Shaw lamented, “Why is youth wasted on the young?” Perhaps by being among them you’ll be energized. 🙂

    Oh yes…and prayers will be in order for you and the younguns.
