pocketful of morphine
I had some interesting things in my pockets this week. Ok two things, morphine and Jesus. My mom's pain got to the point on Friday that I had to stay home from work and she was prescribed morphine. To make sure she doesnt mess up when taking the drugs I give them to her in consultation with my sister the nurse. As she cant attend Mass when father was here yesterday, giving her the anointing of the sick, he said I could bring her Communion in a pyx they would give me after mass. After mass today I spoke with the deacon, he set me up and Jesus King of kings, Lord of lords, etc etc sat in my coat pocket as I biked back home in the chilly wind. Donkey jokes are accepted. We chatted, I suggested it might be a nicer ride if I lived in a place with palm trees :P I was honored to be able to do that but wish a priest or someone else more qualified was available.
