I never got back here to update today. I need mornings to blog and I just didn't have them this week. I managed to post most of the week but by today time had really gotten away from me. Ah, retirement looms on the horizon. I've been advised that I will be busier than ever. It isn't being busy that bothers me - it's that I don't get to choose what I am busy with.

Also, yesterday's word of the day was a week off. Sheesh!

Word of the day:
Gospel

Lk 5:33-39

The scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus,
“The disciples of John the Baptist fast often and offer prayers,
and the disciples of the Pharisees do the same;
but yours eat and drink.”
Jesus answered them, “Can you make the wedding guests fast
while the bridegroom is with them?
But the days will come, and when the bridegroom is taken away from them,
then they will fast in those days.”
And he also told them a parable.
“No one tears a piece from a new cloak to patch an old one.
Otherwise, he will tear the new
and the piece from it will not match the old cloak.
Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins.
Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins,
and it will be spilled, and the skins will be ruined.
Rather, new wine must be poured into fresh wineskins.
And no one who has been drinking old wine desires new,
for he says, ‘The old is good.’”

I never had time to do my cornfield thoughts, but here is an excellent homily on today's readings.
