Fifty-Four Days Till Ordination and Counting

Yesterday, my classmates and I received an e-mail from the director of the diaconate formation program.  He informed us that, after a review of all the evaluation interviews, we were all being recommended to the Cardinal Archbishop for ordination.

There is just enough time to say "whew," and now comes the logistics of planning the ordination.  Many of my classmates have taken on the initial burden, now comes each of us deciding who to invite, where to seat people, who comes to the reception.  There will be more practicums; statements of faith, and fidelity to sign.  And of course, the regular events of life, all claiming our attention.

As difficult as it may be, I really have to make time to be alone with the Lord; to reflect on what is coming.
