I arrived safely back in my quasi-domicile of Ottawa late last night. Thanks be to God, I made all my connections: Brisbane – Sydney – Los Angeles – Montreal – Ottawa. That was the most connections I’ve had on the journey between Ottawa and Brisbane: normally it’s just two stops in between Brisbane and Ottawa.
After leaving winter in Brisbane, I returned to summer in Ottawa. Thankfully I missed the heatwave that they had been having. Today was just like a typical summer’s day in Brisbane – warm and slightly humid.
I took a stroll this afternoon to go to Mass, and concelebrated with the rector of the Cathedral. It was nice to see many of the Cathedral “gang” again.
I head to the U.S. on Tuesday for the remainder of my summer break.
