It was a long day today. I started off at the church for Veneration of the Cross, Stations, Liturgy of the hours, and the Rosary with the St. Mary School kids. Came home and finished putting the wallpaper border up in the bathroom. The vanity goes in tomorrow. We could be finished by tomorrow night!!!!
Took Clay and Claire back up to church with me to work on the worship aides for the Triduum. Poor Clayton, I shut my office door on his fingers. There was some understandable caterwallering. Ten minutes later Fr. Kevin came out of his office. He had been praying in there. His office is right across from mine. A true test of the powers of concentration in prayer.
Word of the day:
Friday of the Fifth week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St. Margaret Clitherow
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 10:31-42.
The Jews picked up rocks to stone him. Jesus answered them, "I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?" The Jews answered him, "We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God." Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, "You are gods"'? If it calls them gods to whom the word of God came, and scripture cannot be set aside, can you say that the one whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world blasphemes because I said, 'I am the Son of God'? If I do not perform my Father's works, do not believe me; but if I perform them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize (and understand) that the Father is in me and I am in the Father." (Then) they tried again to arrest him; but he escaped from their power. He went back across the Jordan to the place where John first baptized, and there he remained. Many came to him and said, "John performed no sign, but everything John said about this man was true." And many there began to believe in him.
