Do you ever have the dream that you are taking a nap in the back seat of a car and you wake up and discover there is nobody driving?
The "Dream Doctor" says that it means something is on autopilot in your life.
Sometimes it is easier being a pastor than others. For example: personnel. If you have someone assigned to your parish that is a bit rounded in a square hole, you can always say, "I'm doing my best but this is who the Bishop sent!" (Nobody like that here by the way.)
Then there are those you bring to the parish. You do your best to vet them - ask priest and other Catholic friends, look at their web sites - ask the questions . . .
But in the end you just have to trust. There is a point at which you are not in control and you get ready either to patted on the back for such a great choice are start figuring out how you are going to apologize.
