Wrapping Up

I left Eagle Butte today. Unlike times past, this departure was not particularly emotional for me. It wasn't as though I didn't like the assignment. I loved it. I seems, though, that I am finally growing used to the fact that as a member of the diocesan clergy, I am something of a transient. There were no tears - they have shed enough of those over the departure of the sisters to worry too much about a short-timer like me. But, there was a sense of excitement. I am leaving in order to complete my final year of studies before coming home for good to serve God's people - my people - as a priest of Jesus Christ. As I look ahead, I think this will be a year for wrapping up and moving on. I am revving to go.
