The Lord's timing is incredible. Just as the OCeeker hit a sabbath in his P90X program, he took in a Mass and healing service at St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Catholic Church in Orange, where, with all the kneeling, sitting and standing, he got in some core work while his sins were washed away.
Wednesday, April 11, 9 a.m.
Edlin read from John 21, where Jesus appeared to the disciples for the third time after his resurrection, preparing a meal of fish and bread on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. The congregation of three then mumbled something sanctified.
He couldn't make out who dealt it, but it was baritone in nature, so the OCeeker placed his tithe on the man.
Taking his place among the aged saints, the OCeeker received his wafer, and a blessing from Edlin, then slurped some holy hooch from a golden chalice as Edlin passed it from parishioner to parishioner.
