In a little over two hours from now we will pass into Passion Sunday and begin Holy Week.
Every year since I retired in 1997 as Bishop of the Diocese of Corpus Christi I have made a private retreat in my home from the beginning of Passion Week until Easter Monday.
During that retreat week I do not watch television or listen to the radio or answer phone calls nor will I work on my computer, which means that this Abyssum Blog will be inactive until Easter Monday.
So, from midnight tonight until Easter Monday I will be incommunicado.
In the event of an emergency I can be reached through Father J. Patrick Serna, 361-364-2210.
I pray that you will grow spiritually during Holy Week and that you will have a Blessed Easter!
