It’s that learning curve when it’s 2 minutes before Mass starts and nothing’s working, or the sound goes awry, and every other concern that one just has to let go of until you reach that point where you just plop down the camera, hit record and then pray.

No Word yet on when this will let up.

We’ve decided to focus more on prayer, YouTube over Facebook, and not worrying about harsh critics. It’s possible to never stop, to simply die of fatigue and exhaustion. Who does that help?
