Part and parcel of a priest's life in the parish? Visiting.

Odd, it has taken me 20 years to get to a point when I think I am just starting to understand how to do that with simple grace...not easy; and with some degree of being able to NOT provoke anxiety among people when the priest is at the door, and they haven't vacuumed...or they are worried about being in a hospital bed...or the dog is particularly jumpy and joyful in greeting the new guest.

Maybe in another 20 years I might have it down to a science.....
