GC Counsel from an "Old Geezer"
Second, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers -- prayers for you to be aware that God is with you in all of it and for you to be aware that your brothers and sisters in faith around the world hold you and lift you up -- and thoughts meaning that I remember the routines. I'm keeping a Gen Conv schedule before me to think of what you're doing throughout each day.
For you new deputies -- I found that comfortable shoes and brown liquids morning and evening to be great helps -- plus enjoying friendships in amazing configurations. If you run across anyone who admits to being my friend, please give them my love.
Today is the Feast of St. Peter and Paul and the commemoration of their martyrdom. These two guys were stalwarts to follow -- and they never figured it all out -- they struggled with heritage, tradition, with each other, and with God's new thing -- they especially struggled about people who were "different." They never got it all figured out or settled. So -- you go to continue their struggling. From my advanced (or at least aging) viewpoint, I think being faithful is more about staying together in the journey and trying, in the Lord's example, to love and serve everyone.
Safe travel. Thank you. Peace be with you.
