Where have I been?

From the Fifth Sunday of Lent until now, I have been whelmed with the cares and liturgies of the Church. H0ly Week was a time of great grace and beauty. At the Easter Vigil I baptized an infant, a child, and an adult. I confirmed seven. On Easter Sunday I baptized an infant at the English Mass and three infants at the Spanish Mass. There were baptisms at the Spanish Mass last Sunday, too.
This Sunday (Emmaus Sunday) is our first communion Sunday. There will be a group at each of the Masses.
Last night I was in Little Rock for the section meeting of the members of the Diocese of Little Rock who are in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. We are planning for the Southwest Lieutenancy meeting that will be held in the see city in October. I was also drumming up participants in the pilgrimage that I am leading to the Holy Land and Rome in November.
On top of everything, I came down with a cold a few days ago, and am only now getting over it.
The insurance assessor was here last week and informed us of many stupid things that we have to do, like Plexiglas beneath the vigil light stands, and velcro-ing the statutes to their plinths. It was unbelievable.
Can you imagine? Some Mohammedans in the world got their feelings hurt by the baptism of a former member of their cult by B16. Poor things.
And my little dog, Butch is doing well, and is with me here in the office as I type. He says hell0 to all of you and prays that you had and will have a blessed Easter season.
