BishopitisI have always suffered from it and I can never seem to get over it.
I feel ridiculous admitting it, but it is true. I am morbidly afraid of bishops.
I know it is irrational to feel this way. But I still do. I always embarrass myself when visited by the bishop. I dread it.
Tomorrow my school is being visited by his lordship and I just know my children will not address him properly or I will forget to do something I should. I would like his lordship to just circumvent my classroom and not come anywhere near me personally.
I have managed to genuflect on my right knee and kiss his ring several times in the past. I am incapable of doing it now and I hope I am not put in a position of being expected to.
I think my bishopitis stems from the time I went to his lordship's Mass and he expected me to lead him in prayer. I was embarrassed to death, though I managed to do it.
I cannot wait until tomorrow is over.
