A week off starting Monday for me
« on: June 13, 2009, 11:34:47 PM »
Starting Monday, in honor of the beginning of the Apostles' Fast, I am taking a week off from all posting. I will, however, check the forum briefly twice a day for any escalations and to interface with my content and technical teams.  If I am able to be consistent in this, I may even take two weeks off. Just wanted to let everyone know in advance.

Are you going to take another week off?  Just curious. 
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

Yes. I am trying to focus on fixing some of the behind the scenes design issues and site organizational issues.

I hope the time is productive, yet relaxing. ;)
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Fr. A,

I would say, "have a drink on me" but I forgot you're on the Old Calendar and still in the Apostles' Fast!  Well, relax and enjoy yourself and then, when the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul comes, then have a drink on me! ;D

The Apostles' Fast has plenty of wine/oil days. So I will take you up on that maybe ;)
