Today is, whaddyaknow, the feast day of my new parish's patron! Last year, I wrote about Pope Benedict's Wednesday Audience discourse about St. Thomas, so if you want to do a little spiritual reflection on the doubter, click here. I have the 7pm daily Mass in a few hours, and I'm wondering what I'll end up saying in the homily? I never quite know what's going to come out until it does, but that makes it exciting. Some guys can be so God-awful boring, reading something they wrote word for word in a monotone voice. Others rip something off from a "homily hints" subscription service, and read it for the first time when they're reading it to the Mass attendees (they're almost as surprised at what they've just said as the people in the pews!).
Well, I have to go back to unpacking now. Right now my room resembles, well, do you remember that last scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark? The warehouse with rows upon rows of boxes? You get the picture.
