Really Real


Back in Philosophy Studies we used to talk sometimes about the "really real." Well, albs have been bought, guests are arriving, rehearsal is this afternoon. It seems that ordination--to the diaconate (spell check hates this word) this go around--has entered the realm of the really real. The really real is scheduled to take place tomorrow, Saturday, at 10:00 am. Wherever you are, pray for the nine of us being ordained deacons here in Cambridge at that time. And if you're nearby, come join us!!

Wish I could be there!

You will be in my prayers all day tomorrow.

If in all your craziness say one for my mother, she is in a diabetic coma.

Thanks.

I, too, wish I could be there in person. But in spirit I am there for sure. Perhaps for your ordination to priesthood I can arrange to be there. In any case, tomorrow especially I will be praying for you and your companions in the Company (Society) of Jesus and asking God's richest blessings as ordination becomes really real!!!

Not only am I praying for you, but the whole mess of Carmelite Sisters -- they're specialists in praying for vocations to the priesthood, incidentally -- are also praying for you.

AMDG,

We'll be in rejoicing prayer for you and your brothers tomorrow. Thank you so much for responding to God's call on your life.

My dearest is discerning a call to the Permanent Diaconate - it will be interesting to go through the process with him in the next few years.
