It's boiling hot

Maybe that’s why my cassock has been widely commented on recently.

Aren’t you hot in that cassock, in such heat? Couldn’t you wear just a shirt?

That’s right, it’s too hot. And I sometimes wear a shirt. For example in my room. And I don’t have the cassock on while I’m asleep. 😉

So why am I taking the pain of wearing it? Maybe I’m trying to compensate for the textile shortage in the streets these days? Or perhaps out of some contrariness, to be against the mainstream? Maybe I don’t like being anonymous and I’d like to “show off”?

Who knows?

Yesterday I met a friend of mine. We sat down for a chat. After a while a man approached us, put on the table a piece of paper with his phone number written on it and – saying he was sorry to disturb –  asked me to call him when I could.

So maybe for him? Maybe for you? Maybe for my own self?
