    Thanks for this timely reminder about the ongoing steps towards the Plenary Council and the invitation for parishes to be involved. I must admit that after an initial enthusiasm and time commitment, I have felt my motivation and energy seeping away. I’m not sure why: maybe the length of time it is all taking? maybe the plethora of other significant issues that I need to attend to in my own life? maybe a lack of consistency in enthusiasm and engagement within my own faith communities? maybe it all just seems so removed from current parish life? maybe a sense that there is a smallish group of people for whom the Plenary Council is front and centre, and they will influence the outcome, which will be very meaningful for them, but less relevant for those of us holding on with trembling fingers to our sense of being church? I will keep reading the documents, and hope for a miracle!
