This is bothering me this morning for some ridiculous reason. I did not think it was worth the energy of defending myself last night but in case you are still deeply disturbed, Alligator: the date on the letter is March 27th. I thought it had been out a couple of weeks.
On top of that, as a wife and mother, my active duties have switched into Easter preparation gear. There is no Easter Bunny. Real, live wives and mothers are usually the ones who work behind the scenes to make Easter a special day in all the practical ways. And those preparations start before the actual day. So I have handled gifts, Easter eggs and special groceries in the past week. The term "Easter prep" is a little colloquial sounding but it simply reflects MY state in life at the moment. It came out when speaking of the priests, which may have sounded terribly irreverent to you. It wasn't meant to be. In between thoughts of Holy Week, my mind is on Easter prep, and that's exactly where God wants it to be at this point in my life. If you have reached a stage where you are able to focus 100% on Holy Week liturgies and nothing else, then please pray for those of us who are still in a very active state of life and do not have the luxury.
