No time for long blogging from here in Texas: just a note to let those who are interested know that I'm still around, enjoying huge hospitality, and that today I met the Diocesan - Kevin, Bishop of Fort Worth - who is a PLAYER PIANO buff. I will try to post a photograph of him in action when I return home next week. Meanwhile, congratulations to my Monsignori (I miei signore?) former colleagues, Keith, John and Andrew.
All those I meet here are anxious for the American Ordinariate to be set up and its Ordinary announced. Pray for them, please, especially for priests of the (Anglican) genuine Diocese of Fort Worth (as opposed to Mrs Schori's rival show).
Tomorrow, I am to do what I've been asked here to do, give one element of a Lent Course in the parish of St Mary the Virgin Arlington (an Anglican Use Parish). More of all this in due course.
Meanwhile, enjoy what's left of S Patrick's day (it is only 6pm here, and very warm)
