“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.”

Perhaps if Fr. Martin changed that terrible color scheme we could read his blog ;-)
I have the same problem. I only get a hundred hits at best on any given weekday and weekends are really slow. Since the Holy Father got elected, other blogs have popped up that have done it bigger and more thoroughy, if only by cutting and pasting /everything/ that mentions the Pope or the Catholic Church. It’s hard to keep up with anything original for the layman who isn’t trained in theology or who doesn’t have backdoor sources in the hierarchy.
Keep the faith!

God Bless, Fr.!

Fr. Fox: Yah… just having some fun wichya. All the best!
It is true, I didn’t have you linked — I didn’t realize you had linked me.
(By the way, my hit count is soaring! You da man!)
Fr. Fox: No! YOU da man! Which I think is the ICEL version of “Ecce homo!
