Please read this, help a priest, and many priests and bishops through him

I want to bring to the attention of the readership an important development in our collective spiritual warfare.

Holy Souls Hermitage

A long-time, some-time participant here, Father George David Byers, CPM, has begun his life as a Hermit dedicated to the sanctification of bishops and priests in this life and their help in the next in purgatory.

Fr. Byers was kind enough to say Holy Mass for my intention today, and I was very touched by the gesture.   I am not sure how the liturgical chainsaw was used.

Fr. Byers has a his page going, Holy Souls Hermitage.  There is an important BENEFACTORS page.  There is plenty of information there for you to drop something in his worthy begging box.

As I do always, he prays for benefactors, who can help in categories:

He posted that someone gave him a box of altar breads for Mass.  And you have to love that “chain saw” category.

Also, it looks as if he might be able to take “Gregorian Masses”, which is a rare thing today.  I can take them once in a while.  They are intense.

Take part in Fr. Byers’ effort to pray for the sanctification of priests and bishops.  We need it.

Consider what he is doing in light of my “Save The Liturgy – Save the World” post.

    Done.

    I wonder though, where he says his Masses under the current circumstances. His hermitage isn’t complete (understatement of the year), let alone his chapel. I suppose that if he were to add specific items for the building of his chapel (say, a window, or altar rail ;) ) that would also speed up things. [Would not that question be better directed to him, at his blog?]

  2. Love that picture!

    I visited the website – looks like a very worthy endeavor. I wonder, does Fr. Byers say the Traditional Latin Mass regularly? Are his Gregorian Masses the TLM? Just curious. [You have to take that up with him. This is not his blog.]

    With his energy he could built an entire monastery in about 2 weeks.
