I attended Clericus today. It was held at Iglesia San Mateo en Ciudad Radial (Radial or Circle City; wadda name!), where my good friend Revdo. Carlos Austin is Rector. Not everyone was there, and only one of the people-who-ask-lots-of-questions-and-have-comments-about-every-damn-subject was there, so the meeting wasn't as long as last month. BUT IT WAS STILL A REALLY LONG MEETING! We didn't have lunch until almost 3:00 pm, which is better than last month when we didn't eat until after 4:00 pm. There were some good discussions (although more than I wanted) and the bishop's talk was very good. He said that the Global Central bishops will be meeting soon. I hope that they will have something to say about the goings-on in places like San Joaquin and Tanzania. But, man, I really hate long meetings, and when they are en español, I hit a wall after the fourth hour and don't understand anything; I just sit there staring into space, praying that everyone will finally tire of talking and give the final prayer.
So, here are some photos. We have the outside of San Mateo; the altar (no jokes about the boom mike above the veiled chalice and paten) and some of the Clergy of Panamá at table in meeting.
I See You!
