The post is late today indicative of a schedule that is quite crunched as boxes are still being unpacked and the duties of pastor (administrator) continue to queue up and take precedence. As a matter of fact the site chronicling my Dad’s WWII service is months behind. Foreseeing this inevitability, a number of weeks back it was mentioned that the future of Adam’s Ale was questionable. But the feed back particularly from the people of St. Sebastian was strong toward keeping it going. So Adam’s Ale will remain.

I am not so sure that seven days a week is feasible however, at least not at the moment. So here is how you might be able to help. Would you mind terribly sending an Email and letting me know either what features you enjoy the most or could do without? When the site was begun (with the assistance and insistence of Dawn Eden) it was purely for the fun of it, but now so many of you in some way have partial ownership in it and I have come to appreciate you as a cyber community. So instead of just slashing and burning, it seemed advantageous to let you have a say in what is good and not so good about the site and what you would like to see in the future.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

God bless,

Fr. V

You might consider a day where you just share your favorite links. If you put Diigo on your blogger blog, it will automatically post any of the links you save to it every day. That's really helpful when you don't have a lot of time to blog.

You can't be at every parish function. You can't visit every homebound parishoner. You can't pray with every family in distress. You can't spend your whole day bloging. "That is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs (+Romero).

So, just do what you can, when you can... and let God do the rest...

And, as always, anything you can and will do will be appreciated.

p.s. I like the quote of the (Tues)day!

I LOVE Symbolic Saturday, Father.

I'm on hiatus this summer so I can relate to the need to scale back.

Prayers here.

I second what ernie said. Monday and Saturday are my favorites (though I wouldn't mind the entire show continuing just as it has!)

I enjoy Monday Tuesday and Saturday

Thanks for sharing

I remain convinced that Monday Diaries ought to be a book, or a multi-volume set one day.

Since you are crazy-busy right now, how about an Adam's Ale own little Catholic Carnival--a weekly compilation of all the usual, but to lesser degrees, because, really now, who the heck could decide what's better to have and to do without from here?? It's all good.

My favorite days are Monday Diary and Symbolic Saturday, although I also enjoy the Wednesday through Friday posts because they normally bring up something I'd never considered. I love quotes, so I enjoy Quote Tuesday. Of course, I'll keep coming back no matter what.

The only thing I haven't looked at much are the video clips. Love the monday diary and the Tuesday posts. We're new to the blog and took the quiz last week with our 13YO son. Was a great way to share our faith and make it fun.

Symbolic Saturday and the occassional quizzes are my favorites. I sometimes incorporate bits that I learn here into my CCD lesson plans.
Take care.
