QuotationI went to concelebration but fell asleep. Fr. Anastasius preached against false prophets-known by pride and rebellion. False prophets rock the boat. I thought that's what the true ones did. In the evening I gave a talk on Joyce. I hope to discuss some of the stories in Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist, and read parts of Ulysses.
