I wrote a while ago about the problems that we were having getting the contract renewed for our keyboardist. His old contract was scheduled to run out on Monday.
Without that contract, Mr. H could no longer gain access to Post. This would mean no music accompaniment for Mass and other religious services.
Mr. H's new contract was signed on Wednesday afternoon, but he couldn't get badged for renewed access until Thursday, Christmas Eve. SSG L did a yeoman's service in following up on all the loose ends that needed following up over the past few weeks in order to make this happen.
I found out on my way to Christmas Eve Mass that it took a one-star General somewhere in Europe to rescue Mr. H's contract from the desk where it had languished for a month and a half.
We sang *lots* of Christmas Carols both last night and at Mass this morning. Thank you, General, for your wonderful Christmas gift to the personnel here in Kosovo!
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
