Taking A Break
We went to St. James for mass today--first time in a month. And I didn't play the organ. A few people were brave enough to ask, and I simply said, "I am taking a break." (Just so you know, we still went to mass the intervening weeks.) I had played the organ for every Friday school mass and feast day plus more than half of the 8:00 Sunday services all this year. That's a lot, for a volunteer. My family wanted me to sit in the pews instead and sing with them, and hold their hands, and pray side by side.
