A Triple Play

I was fortunate to be able to attend the triple ordination at the cathedral in Columbia today. It was a very moving service, although it slowed down during the sermon quite a bit. I think we were meant to inwardly digest e...v...e...r...y... word. Mama always said to chew your food well before swallowing. It was a good sermon as far as content goes. It must be difficult giving a sermon to 3 new priests and to be speaking in the presence of so many of your peers.
We had good representation from Our Saviour with acolytes, choir, friends, Church family, and even a special guest as Reader. I thought Mary Kat was resplendent in her neon pink cast. None of the other ordinands could match that cast. Her accident makes me think that we must remember that today was not about the person we call Mary Kat. This was the day the Lord made, and the Mary Kat we see will be continually remade by God into a new creation just as the new bone growing in her leg will be constantly remodelled by her body, even after the initial healing, the bone will be changing daily. I am also reminded that when we put things in God's hands, he tends to throw a curve ball to let us know who is in control.
