    Resensitized
     
    This weekend's ordinations #2: In the largest modern cathedral in the world, hundreds of us feeling our insignificance beneath the great sandstone vault, the sheer size of the space rendering many of us blind to see what was happening and others of us deaf to the big liturgy, and numbed through sitting tight for many long minutes, we celebrated with friends and colleagues their entrance into ministry, using the best sense we had available, our voices: repeating the long, long chant through the bishop's consecrations: Come, Holy Spirit, come.
