Sunday Sundries.

Mass this morning at St. Leo's with a homily by Bishop Gumbleton. The readings focused generally on the efficacy of prayer, and rather than dispense the standard "God will provide if only we pray" lines the Bishop honestly contended with the fact that, yes, we don't always get what we pray for. He also tackled the violent focus of the first reading from Exodus, exploring the contradiction between Moses' prayer for victory in battle and Jesus' later revelation that "God is only love" and not violence.

This afternoon we'll be joining the Jesuit community at U of D Jesuit High School for their celebration of Oktoberfest. Though I've driven by UDJHS several times, I've never been inside and this will be an opportunity to see the building and to get to know the community there better. On the whole, I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. AMDG.
