    Dearest and I attended an online Mass for Sunday, March 15. It was so nice! I’ve tried doing that by myself, but it feels wrong. Praying alone is fine; Mass should be communal. I need to make a point of asking Dearest to do it with me.

    I haven’t been able to go to church in decades. It’s been so long, they went and changed some of the responses! I still want to say, “And also with you”, but now it’s “And with your spirit.” I think I bungled another one too. And I didn’t know the cantor’s tunes, which have also changed.

    Father Daniel came over once and celebrated Mass with us when the Texas Army crew was in town. It was incredibly moving to me to have Jesus come down right on to my own dining table! My grandson wants to be a priest; he stood right next to Father, who explained everything he was doing. I need a tissue.
