So today is the feast day of the Archangels Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael.
So that means it’s a name day for two (three if you count Eamon’s middle name) of my kids.
So I am supposed to be baking up angel food cake or some other liturgically correct confection.
But maybe I got up early and made buttermilk apple pancakes thismorning before I even realized what day this is. And maybe it’s noteven 10:00 am and I have already emptied the dishwasher of cleandishes, re-loaded it with pancake mess, and am running it again.
So maybe we’ll make do with a pancake breakfast and a few extra prayers to the Archangels for our celebration this year…
Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
obedient to his spoken word.
Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
his ministers that do his will.
