It's hard to get a taxi in Melbourne

This evening our visiting Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church needed a taxi booked to take them home to their accommodation, a beautiful Melbourne convent. Dane made the telephone call, which went something like this:

"Good evening, I would like to book a taxi from [the church]. We would like a MaxiCab."
"Four people."
"Because they're nuns."
"They're nuns."
"I assure you, this isn't a prank, they are going [to the convent]."

It so happens that the driver who received the request declined it, after we called back to see what the significant delay was. Soon after, another suitable taxi arrived, and took the lovely Sisters home.

All in all, we are having a lovely time. Please pray for us, especially as we welcome His Grace, Archbishop Hart tomorrow. Happy Melbourne.
