Post-Easter Season Deep Thoughts: I'm Freakin' Tired

An occasional series, in the spirit of Jack Handey's "Deep Thoughts".

(From a choir director).

"Come unto me, you who are weary," say you my Lord, but I passed "weary" two weeks ago. I am now just freakin', crazy tired. I think it has something to do with going to Mass for weeks with all this stuff going on: those fancy Triduum liturgies, and first communions, and confirmations, and every kid Jack and his sister getting baptized after the Lent backlog, then Pentecost. So I praise and thank you, Almighty God, that we can relax now. That's pretty much exactly how the original apostles responded after the Pentecost. In honor of our forebearers in Christ, let us all take a long nap. Amen.

Well, Jesus took a nap for three days before starting Easter festivities, and then a 40-day break before anyone was being baptized at Pentecost.
