As expected by all, the year has reached a very busy point! With travels, in-house workshops, mid-year evaluations, and all the regular day-to-day activities, I have had little time to post over the past few weeks; add to it the parish mission and Lent fast approaching and you see a busy future ahead of me.
That being said, I wanted to point out a few things past, present, and future in the life of a postulant:
- We spent last weekend in Brentwood, NY, at the Sister’s of St. Joseph motherhouse for a workshop on the environment. I’ve uploaded pictures of the complex here.
- Dennis and I are trucking along through the Bible in our sessions with the retired residents. Having completed the Pentateuch and the Historical Writings, we’ll be moving on to Wisdom Literature this Thursday.
- Having hit a bit of a “wall” motivationally last week (writer’s block was an additional factor in my lack of posts), I have since picked up a little more reading that has inspired me greatly: I’m rereading The Screwtape Letters, and diving into the deep end of philosophy and theology by getting back to Catholicism by Richard McBrien, a book I read a lot of last year.
- Dominic Monti, OFM, is coming back for the second half of “The History of Holy Name Province” workshop that he started a few weeks ago (of which I mentioned here.)
More to come later! Have a great week everyone!
