Ordinary Time 26/Trinity 26 – Thursday
Commemoration of St. Remigius, Bishop and Apostle to the Franks (d. 533)
Commemoration of Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury, Social Reformer (d.1885)
Work has consumed my life. I’ve been getting home late most nights of the past few weeks (7pm or sometimes even 7:30pm). On one hand that means I get a seat on the train home. On the other hand, I am feeling stuffed physically, mentally, emotionally, etc, etc…
On the bright side, my mobile’s data plan each month means that I can go and grab the services for Mattins and Evensong off the Church of England’s Daily Prayer site. Yay for technology.
My unpaid overtime balance is also creeping up too close to the maximum allowable under my employment agreement (30 hours; I’m currently at 28 hours and 11 minutes).
I have a stack of books and periodicals I want to get through. But I come home from work and I am drained beyond belief.
