Retirement

Today (which happens to be the twenty-second anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood) we announced that, LORD willing, my retirement will begin on May 1st, 2014.

I'll be seventeen years late according to Numbers 8, but then I'm not Levitical.

We will have served The LORD and His people at here at StB for fifteen good years.

The prospect is at once alluring and a little frightening, joyful and sad.
