RCIA Class 

We had about a dozen people in our RCIA class last night, which is about normal. There were a couple absent. We discussed Holy Orders and the differences between what Bishops, Priests and Deacons can do. What can Priests do that Bishops can't? Marry people. Who knew? What can Deacons do that Priests can't? Be married. Deacons cannot preside over the Eurcharist and they cannot perform Reconciliation. Who chooses Bishops? It's kind of a mystery, the Pope sends someone to interview others in the area and then someone is chosen.

We had discussions about annulment and divorce, always lively. I like our group, we're getting to know each other pretty well and I look forward to joining the church with them on Easter.
