The diary of a priest, being random thoughts and various things of possible interest from the founding pastor (now retired) of Our Lady of the Atonement Church in San Antonio, Texas.

And so it begins...
Hundreds of students have arrived. The teachers have been getting ready for weeks. The altar is prepared for the first daily Mass of the academic year. And I'm one very happy priest. I've missed having the children here every day over the summer, and for the past several Sundays I've been hearing from them, "I'm ready for school to start!"
This is our fifteenth year as a school, and as I've said fifteen times -- this is going to be a very good year!
