Ever think about recruiting a secretary Father?
Sigh. All those priests… All that free time… Can’t even be bothered to answer 6.023×10^23 e-mails…
Seriously, God bless you and we know you will continue to do your best!
Thanks for continuing to maintain this blog, despite what must be an overwhelming amount of correspondence you receive. It has become a source of not only information, but also hope, comfort, and spiritual growth for me.
Dear Fr. Z,
My email is undoubtedly one of the many. Thank you for your fantastic blog! It is the first site I visit and I pass all the great news and teachings on to others. Without your blog, I would not be attending the TLM and I certainly would not be able to tell others why I love it!
Can I take a risk and ask a question here rather than through email?? Perhaps other experts could offer their opinions as well.
The background: my friend’s attendance at Holy Thursday liturgy. She expressed that she thought it was a very wonderful and meaningful time because beforehand Father spoke to the historical linkage between the liturgy of the Eucharist and the Seder meal. Then as the mass proceeded he would stop and point out those various moments of linkage. At some point she mentioned that “Sunrise/Sunset” from “Fiddler…” was played/sung in the background.
Sooo….how ’bout this kind of teaching moment. Is it proper and permitted?
I cannot fathom getting that much email (that’s not spam).
I feel honoured… quite often the news bulletins/articles I email you make it to the blog… unless someone else is emailing you the same exact article… hmmmm… :-)
Okay, stupid question time…is “Triduum” pronounced “Try-Doo-Um” or “Tri-Dee-Um” as some Catholics tend to pronounce? I think it’s the first.
Forrest, using an Italianate pronunciation in ecclesiastical Latin, “Triduum” is pronounced tree-doo-oom, although when speaking quickly in English, many will say trid-oo-um.
Bless you Father! I have always felt exceedingly blessed when you answer me. I know you are busy.

Yup! We love you, God bless!
Thanks for the link to your great blog! I will enjoy reading all of your posts! Fr. Z, you provide a great (unexpected) service with comments. It is so nice to know we are not alone!
