FINAL “7 WORDS” BROADCAST: 10:30 AM TOMORROW INSTEAD OF TONIGHT
This has easily been the most hectic Holy Week I’ve ever had, with an unforeseen convergence of so many unexpected (and inconveniently timed) events piling up on me this week.
Besides my daily preparations for the nightly “Seven Last Words from the Cross” broadcast series, my schedule has had inserted into it, among other things, a daughter moving back in (and having to let her use my minivan to transport stuff: she has to be out of her existing apartment by this Saturday); having to transport same daughter to another city to get her car repaired and left overnight there; having a guest arrive from out of town for an Easter weekend visit; having to replace some water-and-mildew-damaged bookcases out of my basement with brick-and-board shelving (four trips to and from Lowe’s so far this week with my minivan — that is, when I had the use of it), which has meant shuffling hundreds and hundreds of books around from temporary perch to perch, etc. etc.
As a result, I am now faced with crucial tasks to perform this evening that I thought would have been completed earlier today, and this prevents my being able to broadcast the final talk in the “Seven Words” series this evening.
My goal all along was to time the talks so as to provide you with food for thought prior to your Good Friday meditations on Our Lord’s Passion tomorrow. (If you’re like our family, those of you whose schedule permits probably spend from 12 noon to 3 pm on Good Friday in family prayers, readings, and meditations.) The only time left in my schedule to complete the final broadcast before noon tomorrow would therefore be at 10:30 am Eastern time tomorrow morning.
I realize this may not allow all of you who typically like to watch the broadcasts live to do so: you may be at work tomorrow, or otherwise occupied. As always, however, I will immediately post the recording of my broadcast to my Facebook page, enabling those of you who can’t watch it live to do so whenever it’s convenient for you.
May God give you a tenebrael triduum and a glorious Easter.
Yours in Jesus and Mary,
