No one is exempt from the anxiety that waiting brings. We are all waiting. I am waiting for two things to happen.
First of all, we all know that Fr Alvaro had a private audience with Pope Benedict yesterday. It was short. That says a lot. Speculation has already gone around that a Papal Delegate has been named and will be made public very soon. I hope so. Then we will find out what comes next.
The second thing I am waiting for is tor the bishop of the diocese I am residing in to come back from his trip to Rome (end of the Year for Priests) and the Holy Land. I have already asked to speak with him personally, and am just waiting for the chance. I will ask him to accept me in a parish here while waiting for the process of dissolution from the vows. I know it is not the best solution, but I cannot stay in this community without any apostolate whatsoever. I need to be active. I need to be giving my priesthood to others.
Pray, please, that my bishop will help me as soon as possible.
