This is the day that the Lord has made

As I write these words, Bishop J is meeting with his council. I sent an e-mail to my priest friend and he responded from his Blackberry from the meeting. He said that my petition is on the list of matters to be discussed along with the incardination of Bishop J's brother. I am awaiting word from him as to the results, and then I will call him to find out details, more or less one o'clock eastern time. Updates pending. Prayers requested.

===== UPDATE =====

Here is a translation of the e-mail I just recieved from my priest friend:

The list of matters to be dealt with was huge. The topic never came up for lack of time. I spoke alone with Bishop J and he told me to tell you you can stay with us while you wait. He told me to tell you not to worry. the letter from the legionary superiors never arrived.

So, basically, when I go back on August 20, I will b staying with this priest (where I left my belongings) until the next meeting in September. I had a bottle of Sam Adams chilling to celebrate. I cracked it open anyway. Thanks for the prayers.


  1. The incardination of Bishop J's brother? Is his brother LC?

    It is now ten Eastern time. I am offering prayers that the assignment Bishop J has for you will bless your socks off, Father!

    Anxiously waiting your update.

  2. More prayers for you, God bless you

  3. Father Jack, I'm sorry you didn't get the good news today.

    I can imagine that your friend will be happy to show you the ropes of the diocese (if that is where he is stationed) while you await your new assignment. Perhaps you can even meet some of the fellow priests in the meantime.

    Chin up. It may be time to send off that letter to the Delegate!

  4. Ugh! So sorry the questions have not been answered today!

    Rushed home anxious to hear your location and maybe name?!

    Gene and I discussed how we are hoping to see an LC friend or more leave and incardinate. Wondering all the way home if we will end up knowing you.

    We will keep praying. Hang in there!

  5. I am so sorry to hear you have to wait until September. I am praying for you Padre.

  6. I am so sorry! Praying for you Padre.

  7. I am so sorry Padre. I will be praying for you.

  8. Well the letter from the legion never arrived.
    Why am I not surprised?
    I'm sure your priest friend and his neighbors will be happy to put you to work in the meantime.
    Are you still on the legion insurance? That IS their responsibility.
    Did the bishop give you faculties for now?
