Today I am relaxing and enjoying a beautiful Autumn Sunday morning. It is in the 60's, the sun is shining and it is truly spectacular. I had an early breakfast, went for a walk and am about to head down for Mass. Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, yet in life it often seems so hard to find the time to stop and do just that. I for one find this quite difficult to do. It always seems as if there are one million things to do and only limited time. One of the great things about being in the Seminary is that there is time to stop, relax and reflect. Today for me is one of those days and I am so grateful for it. I am looking forward to doing some reading outside and just taking in the beauty of creation. Every time I stop for such a relaxing interlude I wonder why I don't do it more often.
On a side note today the seminarians from Manchester are being visited by the Diocesan communications director and a photographer. We are schedule to have an afternoon photo shoot for the vocations campaign materials. Just another typical day for me, a quiet morning and an afternoon photo shoot (just kidding about the typical part). In reality my picture is now featured on the diocesan vocation webpage (www.liveinblackandwhite.com ) and every time I see it I am embarrassed. This of course guarantees that my fellow seminarians will be frequenting this webpage whenever I am in the room, just to make me crazy.
