Saying "Be not afraid" is easier than doing it....

Last week I received an email from a correspondent who knew our archbishop before he came to us. My correspondent wrote in his email that my name had come up in conversation, and that I must contact my archbishop.

Since then, I've been trying to figure out what in the world to say. It feels like getting called to the principal's office. I don't want to be a pest or a nuisance, and I know I am one of the more odd sheep in this flock of his; but my job is to keep him and this city and this archdiocese prayed for, so I know he has a right to know I exist.....

The transit van's taking me to the Cathedral very early on Sunday morning; I'll spend time before and after Eucharist sitting in front of the tabernacle with the Lord about this, and then, for weal or woe, I'll send an email to

Deep breath, another one;
hold hands and match stride with our Lady, Mother of the Church;
step forward faithfully, be not afraid.....
