My sabbatical

UPDATE (22 Sept 2012): I have decided to import all the posts from my blog, “Fr Michael’s Sabbatical,” into this one, which is the blog I intend to maintain and keep publishing to. If you want to read the posts from the sabbatical, find the little green file folder in the right hand column (it’s next to the little blue tag, the little clock, etc) and click on it. Then click on the category “Sabbatical,” and all the sabbatical posts will come up.

This is a blog documenting my sabbatical in the summer of 2011. I hope you enjoy what I post and, at least in a small way, share the adventure, the pilgrimage, and the journey.

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.”

  1. I hope you have a great and refreshing time, and a whole lot of fun writing about it here! Like the picture of the pile of stones! 🙂

  2. Stacked ’em myself. (This is what rocks cry out for me to do to them.) The pic is from my family’s mountain bike outing above Moab, UT, in 2009.

  3. Fr. Michael,
    You really deserve this exerience. We pray that God will watch over and guide you in all that you do and everywhere you travel. This experience will truly benefit our parish with all that you share along the way. We hope to see a glow on your face and hear the song in your heart when you return. We will miss you, but are also looking forward to Fr. Gregory’s time with us. Via Con Dios. We are very happy for you.

  4. It is like being with you in Essex, Father.
    I am greatly enjoying the trip.
    Fr Joseph, Whitestone, NY
