Twilight Twitches

Twilight Twitches

fetscherThirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Family,
This week is the first time in months that I went outside my house and thought, “This feels pretty good.” Slightly less humidity
and a little cooler. As I write it is day 17 of the AC in the rectory being on the fritz (well, half of it, anyway...) That’s why a pleasant outdoors is nicely timed. God provides when the permit office of the city of Fort Lauderdale does not.

Dear Family,
Last week I said I would try and reflect on why I write these Twitches every week. Before I do I want to “announce” that we will have an Adult Confirmation Class beginning on Monday, January31st, at 7:00 p.m. Our parish celebration of Confirmation will be on April 3, 2016 with our good friend, Archbishop James Keleher. That’s Divine Mercy Sunday, the Sunday after Easter.

Dear Family,
Someone remarked not too long ago that they didn’t read these Twitches. I suppose I can’t blame them. This isn’t really deathless prose. But I went back to see what I said in last week’s Twitch, and found myself saying, “Damn, that was good.” Now someone will finally read this letter and then go nuts because I wrote ‘Damn.” Ah well. Annie’s in Ireland so I might be able to get away with it.

Dear Family,
Friday was the fifth anniversary of my installation at St. Sebastian as pastor. It hardly seems possible that five years have passed. But then I realized that last Monday was Annie’s 20th anniversary of coming to work at St. Sebastian. That plus the time she worked at St. Clement’s gives her 37 years in the Lord’s service. Of course we all know that the reason she worked all those years for all of us was because of the incredible salary.

What does time mean to any of us? I keep chuckling when I recall a comment someonemade last week about Pope Francis. He had already submitted his resignation (mandatory at 75, like pastors) as Archbishop of Buenos Aires in December of 2011. He was waiting for Rome to appoint a successor. So what do you do when you retire as being the Archbishop of a huge Archdiocese? You become Pope.
