it’s been a good week

What a week this has been! Two significant events this week have filled my heart with gratitude and hope.

First, it’s difficult to describe how inauguration day made me feel. The only thing I can think of is to tell you the words that come to mind as I reflect on the day:

moved, inspired, proud, grateful, hopeful

Just know that those words will only point you in the direction of my mood this week. I feel so much more than what words alone can describe.

Second, I spent some time with my confirmation students this week. I hadn’t seen most of them since before Thanksgiving. But in their preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, they had the opportunity to experience the sacrament of Reconciliation again on Wednesday night. I took advantage of the opportunity as well.

It’s been a good week.
