Anniversary

 Anniversary
I was about to post a blog for today, and somet
hing in me kept saying that May 14 was some special day.  Like what? Duh!  I suddenly realized that I was ordained a priest on this date 41 years ago.  I had such high hopes then, mixed with some fear and sense of being overwhelmed on this day so many years ago.  I was going to fix a lot of broken things, make the world a better place, make a difference.  I was sincere but a bit ego-centered.  I would find out, not soon enough, that I first had to fix me, and that would take a spiritual journey I had not envisioned on the day I was ordained.  What I know, is that God had my back, even though I was delusional.  Though some people tell me that I am a good priest, I see myself as good, given all my faults, and weaknesses.  That is, I could be a lot worse than I turned out.  And maybe I am still growing.  I would like to think so.  As long as I don't get stuck in my ways, I can be open to that Power, God, who has my back.  I still have work to do, on myself and for others.  Or God has work to be done and I just string along.
