February 13: Blessed Absalom Jones

I must get back to the calendar of the saints sometime this spring. What has happened to all my good habits* ?

Nevertheless, I remembered Blessed Absalom on and off all day and now that I have had my
snow meal and gone for a little stroll around the cyberhood, I rejoice that, as I had hoped, Padre Mickey honored this holy man, whom Mary Sue rightly calls priest and prophet.

* The Lenten discipline is sticking so far. I went for a walk in the rain this morning under a big umbrella. (Light rain this a.m., heavy snow this p.m.) Saw a beautiful bird skimming the surface of the pond nearby.
