Fr. Z’s Kitchen: Coda alla Vaccinara with digressions into Roman stuff, like a new old confraternity

Last night I had another Supper For The Promotion of Clericalism.  Of course you get what I mean.  There is a good clericalism, too, the sort whereby priests support each other in their identity, etc.   There’s a lot of hooey out … Continue reading

ACTION ITEM! For the Covington men at a crucial turn in their young lives!

Since I have been in Tokyo, I haven’t been tracking the US news very much.  I’ve only slightly followed the disgusting Covington Matter. This morning I caught up. I learned that Bp. Foys addressed the school, but parents weren’t allowed … Continue reading

Wherein Fr. Z rants at the beginning of a New Year of Salvation

I’ve noted with interest a number of reviews of the past year regarding the Church.  Not a few saw the last year as a “year from hell” or an “annus horribilis”. Sure.  That’s not unfair.  It was a very difficult … Continue reading
