Thanks are due to you – UPDATE

Please accept, O WDTPRSers, both active and lurking, my gratitude for what you have been doing lately.

First, your support has helped WDTPRS be the front runner for two blog awards.   In the 2007 Weblog Awards we did respectably well.  The voting is closed as of 8 November.  We are also doing well in the ongoing 2008 Blogger’s Choice Awards, even after the oddities that took place.  Your support helps put Catholic blogs in the spotlight and provides benchmarks which help WDTPRS remain on solid footing.

Second, several people have lately used the donation button, either on the left side bar or on the audio project pages.  Thanks very much.  Since I pretty much have to support most of what I do by writing, your help is very welcome. 

Also, many thanks to the kind soul, MF of CA who sent me a copy of Tertullian, Cyprian & Origen On The Lord’s Prayer from my Amazon wish list.  As a matter of fact, I received several nice things via the list recently, which sure brightened up my days!

I add here many thanks to JH of MN who sent me a copy of Boniface Ramsey’s Ambrose, a very good and useful book!  It arrived today as a lovely surprise!

On Friday, 9 November, the Feast of the Dedication of St. John Lateran, I will bring a list of recent donors with me to the altar and happily remember you at the Memento (of the living!).

On Friday, I’ll be saying Mass at 1100 EST – (1800 CET – Rome)

    Dear Father,
    I would like to send you a brand new copy of Romano Amerio’s book “Iota Unum”.
    How do I go about sending this to you?
    I would have e-mailed you personally but I realize that you recieve hundreds of e-mails perday.
    Thank you and God bless you.
    Dan

  2. The thanks goes to you, Father. You have not only an informative blog, but also a very entertaining blog as well.

    You are certainly in my intentions and daily prayers.

    You are doing a great service to the Church with this blog.

    Pax et Bonum,
    RS

    Fr. Z,

    Thank you for all of the effort you put into this blog. I hope you enjoy the book. Your ministry here is wonderful.

    I may have missed a post on it, but what is your dissertation on? Do you plan on returning to Rome when it is finished? Or do you desire to stay here in the States?

  4. dan: I have it already. Thanks anyway!

  5. Michael: With the dollar the way it is now, it is hard to stay in Rome for long periods right now. I can save some dough by making shorter stays and watching for deals on flights. It winds up cheaper that way!

    Dear Father:

    I think your readers and you will really enjoy this article on Latin.

    For those who want to join Father’s Mass, spiritually or by webcam (if it’s operating): I am fairly sure that, today, 1100 EST (US Eastern time) is 1700 in Rome, not 1800. EST and CET are normally 6 hours apart, except for a couple of weeks of the year where Europe changes clocks a week before the US does.

    Thanks, Fr Z, for the energy and passion you put into this blog.
