Today I...December 3rd

Today I...

...gave tour number three for this week. It went well, but the kids were getting tired by the end of the day and so was I, particularly my voice. One more to go and then I get to rest my vocal cords until Monday. Hopefully they well appreciated and will allow me to enlist their services for choir practice on Monday night.

...found out, along with everyone else at work, that dear Brother Ubald Parr, a 98 year-old Holy Cross Brother who was integral part of the Oratory's musical fabric for 61 years passed away in his sleep early in the morning. It was a bit of a shock in spite of his age, I think we all had the feeling that he would always be around :o)

...had my last tai chi class. Taking tai chi was an okay experience, but not quite what I expected it to be. Maybe if the classes had been in a bigger, airier room that wasn't next to the skating rink and therefore freezing cold I would have enjoyed it more. I don't know. Maybe I'll give it a try again some day, but not this winter.

...wondered why in the heck a teacher could expect us to give a workshop on sacred objects used during mass without mentioning Christ??? Really sir, how would YOU explain a Communion wafer without mentioning Jesus? If you figure that one out, let me know...
