Robert DeNiro – be bread – Tootsie Pop

MASS – (Fr Alvarez) — when preparing for a big movie role, Robert DeNiro would immerse himself into the character for months.  As we immerse ourselves into seminary life, we are called to “change” as we grow.  Blessed are we if we are open to conversion — open to change.  — Amen.

worklist - washing windows with a lizardMODERN PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — continued Decartes’ Meditations.

ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — finished Euthyphro.

ARTS & IDEAS – (Fr Vallee) — continued Greek handout pg 6-9.

WORKLIST & HOLY HOUR — today, in “Sacristy” worklist, I cleaned windows.  During holy hour, we reflected on a spanish phrase, “un pedazo de pan”  — it means something about “being bread” — a phrase that means you’re down to earth and “meet people where they’re at.”  It as a great reflection on Jesus and how Tootsie Poppriests (and all Christians) are called to minister.

DINNER — I’m serving this week at a table that likes to make “mixed drinks” (various soda combinations).  Today was a drink that tasted just like a Tootsie Pop.  It’s Sunkist mixed with chocolate syrup.  — it’s good, but more as a stand-alone drink, not with beef.  🙂
