Snow - but onward

The retreat in early February took the place of our regular meeting. It was a wonderful experience, by the way.

Last night, the meeting got cancelled due to the snow storm that hit the Rochester area.

It is just as well. With dad in the hospital, I was able to pop over again to see him last night.

But still, I was looking forward to the meeting - I need a spiritual boost with all that's going on. And I've had no formal formation sessions in a month since completing the Inquiry phase.

Patience.

The formation director called and left a message to let me know the meeting was cancelled. Then he said I should just go ahead and read the first candidacy session material, even though I am not officially a candidate yet. I will gladly do so.

Pax et bonum

God bless you on your journey. My wife and I professed last October, six of us total, and it was a very emotional experience. But as to your formation, for me it was the best 2 1/2 years. Nine of us at different stages of formation and the wide array of ideas and prayerful communication between us was amazing. Actually more energetic and exciting than the regular meeting. We have a big group, I believe close to 30 people, and to get everybody on the same page is tricky at times. But you know how it is; Our Lord calls, saying 'Follow Francis' and we listen. May our Blessed Mother be with you as you follow Her Son. Peace. k
