However, I have found that various other priorities -- family, diocesan ministry, teaching, parish ministry, writing (I am currently working on four book projects, plus I'm a regular contributor to Priest and Deacon Digest) and traveling to direct retreats and to present at convocations of priests and deacons -- are just keeping me from being able to give the necessary attention to the poor blog. What I need is a good blog editor who would be willing to take that on for me! Comments from readers critical of my sporadic postings (as well as criticizing what I DO choose to post; seems like others had a view of what this blog -- my personal blog, no less -- should be!) have confirmed me in this decision.
So, at least for the foreseeable future, I'm signing off the blog. If you have any need to contact me, please find me on Facebook or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God bless all here, and be good servants to each other!
