“Given that Rorate Coeli and Shea are mad at Fr. Z, I think it proves Fr. Z knows what he is doing and he is right.”

Thanks be to God!
Now on to the most recent MP rumors. Fr Z, what do your spies say about the rumored release before Easter?
God Be Praised! That temporary site was just not the same, though I appreciate your effort to keep the blog going. I feel like I’ve been missing a vital nutrient for the last several days.
Welcome back Father – it’s good to have you speedy and up-to-date!
Brand new to your site!
I’m working on passing the marriage amendment
in PA. I appreciate your comments on the
sanctity of marriate.
May God bless you!
Glad to see you’re back in full swing.
I’m not sure on the “bigger”, but from my end it’s certainly not “faster”. It’s taken me more than five minutes to display your blog’s home page (https://wdtprs.com/), which is even longer than before the move to Joyent.
Not all of us have the luxury of access to high-speed connections. On a good day, I consider myself singularly blessed to secure a baud rate of (snicker) 24k (!) on a dial-up connection â€“ which is the only format available in my remote area.
Fr. Z, if you can ensure that those beautiful photos you post are stripped down to a resolution of no more than 72dpi, that’d sure help speed things up for those of us still in the hinterlands.
And keep up the good work!
Congratulations Father Z.!
Um, so what’s wrong with Pindar?
Congratulations. However…. None of the RSS feeds are working. I get the following error with all of them: Error reading URL: Too many redirects
Forgot to mention: the feed addresses I tried were:
I should have mentioned that I also tried using https://wdtprs.com/wp-rdf.php as the feed address. The only thing that worked (finally) was letting feedburner.com generate a feed address using the Universal Subscription Mechanism, which resulted in the following: http://feeds.feedburner.com/wdtprs/ZDys.
Sorry about the multiple posts: I think I may be over caffeinated.
Allow me to render an out-of-season “Alleluia!” in honour of your enhanced virtual presence. The internet was never the same without you, Padre! But fame does have its inconveniences. Welcome back!
Again what’s, what’s wrong with being interested in Pindar?
Thanks for remembering us at the Mass today. And, thanks for all that you’ve provided on Sacramentum Caritatis.
Last night the site took forever to load. But, this morning it was a snap. I think things were still trying to work last night. People that were having problems yesterday, may be fine today.
Fr. Z: I know you said that Latin will end up being the Master and the vernacular is often not updated in documents like Sacramentum Caritatis. Should we presume it was written in the Holy Father’s native tongue? Can we send letters to a particular Vatican office, pointing out our concern and asking that the English be updated? If so, where and to whom? Maybe it’s never been done before, but in the past, “the people” have never gotten such information so quickly.
” which is languishing in limbo” – I thought limbo had been abolished? ;-)
I agree, Diane. I would be glad to write a letter as well.
AWESOME! We need your translations, wit and analysis…Welcome back to full speed!
Aaaaaahhhhhhh….back home. We’ve crossed the desert and we are now in a cool, comfortable climate. (There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home)
It’s wonderful to have you back, Padre!
Just downloading your latest podcast… :-)
Very cool Padre. Good to have you back in full swing..
It seems that your last podcast cuts off after 4:18 mins. Or is that something to do with my side of things?
I vote we elect Fr. Z to be His Holiness’ official Latin translator!!!!
All in favor say “aye”.
You are doing the Lord’s work and I, for one, want to express my gratitude at being given the opportunity to do my bit to help.
That you are saying Mass and bringing a list of those who have assisted you on my Feast Day gives me “Holy Spirit shivers” of glee. May the Lord’s abundant blessings overwhelm you!
The automatic RSS feed link has to be changed in your WordPress template.
Augustine: When I find it, I will change it.
Great to have you back, Father!
Congrats Father! Glad to see you back! Btw when are you going to turn the comments back on??
Happy St. Joseph’s Day
Fr. Pecoraro: You know… I was thinking about not turning them on for all entries. The problem is that a few people post extreme and, at times, less than reasonable things. That just creates more work for me.
Great to have you back, Father!
Bede: It is great to be back in business. There are a few bugs, but we will solve them one by one.
Very glad to see you back. Thank you for all your work to advance our rich and beautiful Catholic heritage which drew me out of Protestantism over 40 years ago.
Hmm. The Israelites spent only 40 years in the desert. It’s time for a change.
