I’m feeling a little down today 'cause my priest gave his ‘farewell’ homily today. He’s been at my parish for 15 years. I’ve posted on this before, you guys may remember. Anyway, he had to stop a couple times to clear his throat and his voice cracked a couple times, like he was starting to cry. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. He is a fantastic priest and I really believe him to be a good and holy man. Our associate pastor is leaving as well (he’s also awesome). We’re really going to miss them. It won’t seem the same without them.
We’re getting two new priests at the end of the month that so far everyone says are great. So, here’s to hoping. They’ve got big shoes to fill, though.
I just feel pretty sad is all I guess and I knew you guys would understand. Would you mind sending up a prayer for my parish and our priests, new and old? Transition is pretty tough, I’m finding out. Thanks again all.
And thanks for putting up with me whining about this again.
