between Popes
I look for my place
in the Missal

Missal: A book containing the texts used in the Catholic Mass throughout the year. Many Catholics "follow" the Mass in the missal, a practice going back to a time when the Mass was in Latin; by providing an English translation, the missal let us know where we were.

It isn't going to be a woman, no.

Don't fear !

Not yet.

As we know, the Lord's mills grind ever so slowly, but... they grind exceedingly small!

So, what might that mean, hmm ?

Interesting to speculate, Monika. But reading the mind of God is not a skill I lay claim to. Thanks for the visit.

I like your sense of humor, too, Bill.
Not only in this haiku, of course.
Best regards. Iris
