Just an FYI because I've been to busy to answer your one question regarding EMHC's. At our parish EMHC's are scheduled. The problem is that sometimes they do not show up and as MC you have to rush to get another EMHC who was not scheduled to fill in (sometimes 5 minutes before Mass starts). Well except for today because we are testing to see if we can get by with less so we have 4 less of them today. I was able to give some of the scheduled ones the day off.
I just got your friend request. Don't know how long ago you sent it, but I accepted it with gratitude and feel very honored. I have always enjoyed your posts. You show tremendous wisdom and devotion in your posts. God bless you!
