I thought I would finally get an entire week posted at one time. Alas, I don't think it's going to happen today. I wrote a lot of this week by hand with good old-fashioned pen and paper, and I'm not done typing it and formatting. My dear godmother's mother has died, and I have to leave now to help at the wake. Also, I'll be going to our deanery's service for Veneration of the Cross. In this time of sorrow for my kuma, I'm glad we can also remember that after the cross comes the Resurrection! Amid death, there is life!
Here's today's reading. After the funeral tomorrow, I'll type the rest of the week and post it.
If you're able, please say a prayer for the handmaiden of God, Julia. May her memory be eternal!
