Last week I scurried to finish my assigned formation reading, then went to our Secular Franciscan meeting site.
There was no meeting.
I forgot that the meetings are not every two weeks, but the second and fourth Fridays of the month. I've done the same thing a couple of times.
Foolish me. And there I had rushed with my readings because I'd fallen behind. I did not give them the attention, the thought, they merited. I was reading to finish the readings, not to take in their meanings.
Perhaps St. Francis smiled to watch me.
Today, Veteran's Day, I am off from school, so I can do more reading. More slowly, More prayerfully.
And this Friday I will show up to find - a meeting.
Pax et bonum
