Antagonism, Priestly Style

Today being All Saint's Day, the office is closed. Thought I would have some fun with family and friends, and sent the following email:

Hello, my friends.

I just wanted write to ask you all how work was going today.

It's been a tough one for me so far, had Mass at Mother of Mercy High School, and let's see... hmmm.... that's about it for today.

Oh, I guess I have my regular Mass at the Cathedral tonight, but nothing else on the docket.

Well, have fun! :)

To pass the time:

hmmm.... might go take a nap now.

Did I ever mention how difficult it is to be a priest these days?

And what heavenly fellow sent you that nice link of his (and your) favorite brew?

That would be my fabulous twin brother, of course!

do you for real have twin brother?

i do, and i'm going to Memphis TN from my hoosier home to visit him and his family this weekend ... AND to attend the transitional diaconate ordination of his oldest son, to who i am his favorite 'uncle' jim.

uncle jim:

Yep, I do indeed have an identical twin brother, except he has a bit more hair than i do (he doesnt shave the top.) He, with his lovely wife and darling two year old (is there such a thing?) live out in Iowa, and I'll be visiting in December.

Enjoy the Deacon Ordination, always great events. My arguement is that the Church does nothing better than the Easter Vigil and Ordinations.
