Busy weekend

Depending on how each parish celebrates All Saints and All Souls, this could be one of the busiest weekends of the year. And we're not exactly dealing with light things. It's not about parties or apple bobbing, but about the last things and how they affect each person.

A priest who celebrates his three allowed Masses today might easily tack on an extra one this evening, not to mention baptisms and weddings made possible by the longish weekend. Musicians may not have had much family time on Thursday evening, with no end in sight until Sunday afternoon.

Just one of those tough weekends of the liturgical year. Wishing everyone well!
