This was Fr. Hart’s answer:
“I am, with God’s help, going to preach the word, celebrate the Eucharist, do my best to let all those I meet know I am for them, not against them, practice the peace of Christ rather than anger or anxiety, comfort the afflicted, bless the sick, forgive those who hurt me, trust God, and follow a
rule of stability no matter what happens; and above all, make my home in Christ in whom all things cohere.”
I pray this for myself as well and I will do my best to do these things with God’s help. They will never be perfectly done; however with God’s love, help and grace, my journey will continue.
I will leave you in person but never in spirit. I have a meeting planned with the Diocesan Cannon to the Ordinary and we will discuss how and where I can continue my ministry here in San Diego. I expect I will not be too far away.
You have read my agreement with Fr. Hart’s conclusion, “But the really important question (in response) from me is, “What will you do?” How will YOU live YOUR life to the best of your ability with God’s help?
What will you do?
God’s peace be with you,
