Good Things Happening

We have some good things going on where I am.

For example, there is a new chapter of EnCourage forming in the Diocese of Madison.   HERE

Tonight we have a Sung Mass for All Saints at 6:30 at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff.

Tomorrow, All Souls, The Extraordinary Ordinary, Bishop Morlino will celebrate a Pontifical Requiem at the Throne for the deceased priests of the diocese.  That Mass, at 7:00 PM, will be at the chapel of Holy Name Heights.

    My beautiful daughter came into this world ten years ago today. ’Nuff said for a good day!

    Fr. Z and JustaSinner: Excellent.

    Doesn’t compare to Church and Child, but: Deo Gratias for Big Sky Country and ranch steak.

    Johnny Mercer wrote a song during the turbulent year of 1944, here it’s sung by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald:

    Gather ’round me, everybody
    Gather ’round me while I preach some
    Feel a sermon comin’ on me
    The topic will be sin
    And that’s what I’m agin

    If you want to hear my story
    Then settle back and just sit tight
    While I start reviewing
    The attitude of doing right

    You got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
    E-lim-i-nate the negative
    And latch on to the affirmative
    Don’t mess with mister inbetween

    Deo Gratias for Big Band. One more, a Glenn Miller classic:

    “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the Earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

    “Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with trumpets and the sound of the horn and the saxophone…”

    (Ok, that last one Tracer Bullet insisted. He’s getting a little “ranch happy” and is thinking of swapping his trenchcoat for a Duster.)
