spiritual direction

Well this past weekend was another great spiritual direction weekend with Fr. Paul at his two parishes in Brandenburg and Flaherty, KY. Saturday I M.C.'d two masses and then for supper we met his parents at the Schnitzel Barn (see pic), a great German restaurant in Vine Grove/Flaherty. A tall Warsteiner hit the spot after a hot day under a cassock and surplice. Also, the Zigeuner Schnitzel was delicious. Afterwards, we watched the video of Fr. Paul's deaconate ordination at St. Mary's. It was beautiful and very inspirational. After two masses on Sunday we met up with one of Father's friends at BBC to have a celebratory toast to my being accepted into seminary (I highly recommend the Summer Wheat). There he gave me a lot of great practical advice on seminary life.

Sunday night, in between innings of a heartbreaking Cardinals and Cubs game, I worked on the seminary applicaton to St. Mary's. Fr. Bill wants that all taken care of by the time he gets back from vacation on Friday.
