Advent is always a quiet time for me. I will be giving the day of recollection for all the diocesan workers of the diocese of Austin TX early in the month.
I’m looking forward to visiting some relatives in Louisiana and spending Christmas with my Franciscan community in Crowley TX.
Immediately after Christmas I will be heading for my personal retreat at the Trappist monastery outside Atlanta GA. I’ll be joined by my ordination classmate — Fr. Art and I were ordained priests 30 years ago and this will be our first time on retreat together.
Blessed Advent to everyone!
Fr. Albert OFM
