Preparing for school

Ironically, I’m preparing for school, but I’m not going to attend any classes!  I’ll be helping out with sacramental ministry at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, however.

Meanwhile, I also have some time to enjoy listening to LPs of classical music.  Most recently, I listened to some Vivaldi.  Yes, he was a priest, but apparently he wasn’t very focused on sacramental ministry.  He might have had some sort of allergy because he complained of a constriction in his chest after celebrating Mass, and thus was apparently given a dispensation from the requirement to celebrate.

The ability to celebrate Mass is quite a gift.  Even the angels can’t do this.  It’s too awesome for words.  Poor Vivaldi.  His music is beautiful, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the ability to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
