Here is the Epistle for today. It is the one about running the race.
The Epistle is sobering. If you read the Latin side, you will find the roots of many English words. Below is a photo I took today long before Mass started. My camera makes the interior seem bright. Actually, when Mass is not being said, the interior is dim, dim and dark. When I am present, everything in life becomes crystal clear. Behind me are the confessionals (4). I went to confession today. If someone were to ask me the total number of times I have been to confession, I would say at least 200 (CC in Roman numerals). The altar looks as if it is sagging, but the illusion is created by a flat, velvet covering that overlaps the top edge. As part of their duties, the altar boys remove the covering, which protects the white linen altar cloth. A white linen wrapped Our Lord's body before He was taken to the tomb. Then we begin. St. Stephen the First Martyr, Sacramento, CA.
