There was not time today to post on Paragraph 9 of the Catechism, as I was out of the "home office" at the beck and call of my diocese to spend the day in catechetical formation. Today's course was "Prayer and Spirituality" offered to about 25 students, primarily Catholic school teachers. Actually I had three principals in the course. The course was offered at a parish school in South Orlando, on the "Orange Blossom Trail" or U.S. 441. When I moved here in 1978 this southern portion of the Trail was Orlando's Red Light District, as they say. However, the city fathers have labored to spruce things up down there, and I had breakfast at a Dunkin' Donuts with an Orlando City policeman young enough to be my grandson, it appeared.
This is my second theology course this month, and I have one more next Monday at today's site on Church History. I continue to marvel at the great interest of our school staff and the parish catechists who attend. Their interest, questions, and general good cheer is very encouraging for our local churches and schools. If I have any of today's students looking in tonight--you were a great class.
Tomorrow we'll be back on regular schedule.
