Well, all right then. Maybe you'll have another thought by and by...

Are you referring to confession? I don't get your point.

Are you unaware that Catholics have been exempted from the obligation to attend mass during the Covid crisis?
Although indoor masses have resumed in my area for several months, I choose not to be in an enclosed setting for 40-60 minutes with others.
I'm older and have several pre-existing conditions that would make covid-19 extremely hazardous if I were infected.

I don't think any one peron would be willing to bring the news.

It would be an assemblange, including some family members, maybe even Melania.
It won't go well.

I attended Mass in person this afternoon for the first time since early March. Very moving...

It was an outdoor Mass held in a field adjacent to a nearby parish, not my own parish.
The altar was under a temporary roofed, open-air structure.
Several parishes were involved, at least two priests and a deacon presided.
Congregants brought their own chairs or blankets, and were arranged in family-groups for the most part.
Covid protocols of distancing and facial covering were widely, though not entirely, observed.
A woman I did not know saw me, with my Handicane, and offered use of her chair to me.
She accompanied me up the sloped walkway to the lawn under a tree, and settled me in.
She then arranged that someone would bring me Communion, when the time came.

I found the Mass itself and the whole situation very moving, brought me to silent tears at times.
So very uplifting to be among these worshippers I did not know, all there to once again give praise and thanksgiving.
In a way it's too bad, I/we had to wait until late September for this beautiful Mass, with outdoor season almost over.
So happy I was able to be there today.
Renews hope for better days ahead.

Jones has acquitted himself well during his brief tenure in the Senate.

I always find his words, tones, and actions in tune with a moderate Democrat.

My adult daughter lives in a long-term care facility. She has many medical conditions

requiring monitoring and care I cannot give her; however, she is mobile and goes out to medical appointments.
Her caregiver drove her into my driveway after several of her appointments, giving me the only chance we had to physically see one another during lockdown. That was a blessing to me and to her.

He would describe me that way as well. I'd be toast, or ashes.

Sorry, I'm not ready yet for his trash heap; still have work on earth and responsibilities, even though the body is not so great.

Can't wait until my ballot arrives in early Oct. I'll hand-deliver it to my local Board of Elections to remove 45 asap, and I'll vote Dem the rest of the ticket.

I envy you.

Hubby and I used to belong to a local walking club as well as Volksmarch, an international walking group.
Those were among the best years of our lives - we were in our 50s.

I am sorry to know that.

Have to wonder what their defense is.
