COVID-19 and My Adoration Chapel Routine

I’ve been spending an hour in Sauk Centre’s St. Faustina Adoration Chapel every Wednesday afternoon for several years. At least since 2014.

At first, the time felt like an hour of ‘doing nothing.’ But I kept going, because I thought it was a good idea. I’ve talked about that before. The usual links to related stuff are at the end of this post.

After a while, maybe a year or so, the time still felt more-or-less like an hour. But not an hour of ‘doing nothing.’

I’ve been enjoying my regular hour spending time with our Lord.

Then, at the end of January this year, I got sick. Each week, I’ve let the folks organizing the Eucharistic Adoration know what the current situation is.

Then, last week, since I was still running a fever, with no clear end of the situation in sight, I let the folks know that I can’t be sure I’ll be there regularly. For the foreseeable future.

That’s among the least-favorite decisions I’ve made. But I think it made sense.

Good News, Not-So-Good News, COVID-19 and Me

Brian H. Gill: brilliant, talented and on medication. (2021)The bug I’ve got is the COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 one that’s been a regular news item. Probably.

I’ve got a routine checkup coming, and plan to ask about getting tested for the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

The tests aren’t 100% accurate — nothing of that sort is — but I’m curious, and it’ll be something to talk about.

The good news is that I’m not as sick as I was during the first part of February. The not-so-good news is that — well, I’m sufficiently not-well to quit what has become one of my favorite devotions.

I’ll still be going to the Adoration chapel, as circumstances permit. And I’ll probably be talking about this bug I’ve been hosting, and the effect it’s had.

And that’s another topic, for another week. Month. Whatever.

Finally, here’s that link list:
