At Mass on Sunday, Fr. Jim Farrell shared a thank you note he received from a little girl in the Religious Ed program at St. Pius X. He had spoken to the kids about Holy Orders, explaining the duties of each of the three orders – deacon, priest, and bishop.
In sharing the thank you note with the congregation, he added emphasis (and turned toward me) when he read the line, “You do twice as much as the Deacon.” I am not sure if the emphasis was his way of saying, “Take that!” or “Can you believe she thinks I only do twice as much as you?”
In fairness, I would like to publicly acknowledge that Fr. Jim Farrell does at least THREE times as much as I do.
