Beginning the day right
We were up early this morning to get everything ready for breakfast, then walked over to Peggy's house, where Archbishop José Luis Escobar Alas met us at 6:00 AM (which mean leaving San Salvador at 5:00 AM). He said Mass for the three of us in Peggy's tiny chapel, thanking us in his homily for the gift we had given in leaving family and security to accompany the people of El Salvador.
Then Monseñor Luis and his driver and Peggy joined us for a good breakfast. It was a pleasure to tell him a little about our work here, and especially to thank him for the excellent assistance we've received from the Archdiocese. And it was a pleasure and honor to hear him talk with deep feeling about the longings of the people here, about their need for justice and hope.
A fine way to begin the day!
