And little ole ‘Tavares’ Florida! You say, where the H . . . is Tavares in Florida. Why we are 10 miles south of where you saw those devastating pictures of the homes destroyed by the cyclone one week ago. I slept through the whole thing. That’s what happens when you get old like me. Once I slept through a fire. It took the firemen running through the place, chopping on the walls to wake me up! Yes, the whole world is waiting for the Holy Father to allow the Traditional Mass to flourish again. We are waiting and watching . . .
Yeah – I agree, Fr. Z.
What I find humbling is to see hits from places like Taipei, Tai-pei, or Nigeria (with no city specified), or even small towns in the US, I’ve not heard of before.
God Bless blog-readers. I don’t know if any one else out there has had it happen, but reading magazines and newspapers is now difficult because it’s all “old” news.
It’s neat seeing what is going on all over the world like, “now” and it’s interesting to see the world is checking in on our end of the globe to see what is going on.
When one stops and thinks about it, the missionary Catholic church was the first truly global form of communication, an internet of its age. The churches were the websites, and the masses of the day were designed to allow the faithful to see basically the same material wherever they were in the world, with assurance of an authoritative and authentic viewing. True electronic media is faster, at least until the power goes out. But at least in the RomanWeb days they didn’t have to worry about being hacked, or deal with pop up advertisements. A much safer form of internet, I’d say!
I’m very disappointed you didn’t mention a place even more unknown and far away: Santiago de Chile, hometown of this grateful reader of yours.
May our Lord bless you.
Leuven, far flung! Its just ten miles away from here.
Perhaps your readership is even more far reaching…”death, the undiscovered country…”
Don’t forget Seoul, Korea!
Funny you should mention Tavares! I’m from west GA (and so is my mother), and the other day
she was recalling how she and my godmother worked in the back of a restaurant one summer
in between their first and second years of law school. She, too, said it was in the middle
That “unknown country” always makes me a bit nervous too.
Glasgow? I knew a girl from East Kilbride–to this day the most beautiful girl I have ever met.
That’s me reading the blog here in Leuven, Vlaams-Brabant, Belgium. I’m a Roman traditionalist seminarian who’s up here for a little vacation after exams.
