    Congratulations for the 4 million, and the same to the lucky 4 millionth.

    Otherwise, welcome back to this side of the Ocean.

  2. FWIW: We hit 3 mil on 11 June.

  3. John Womack says:

    Brick by brick, Padre… :-D

    Congratulations and God bless you!

    And, when you started this ministry (to use an over-used term…), Father, did you think that the equivalent of a large city would be affected by your wisdom, insight, and good sense?

    Brick by brick? More like erecting a cathedral.


  5. bryan says:

    In that case, Father Z., I offer my hearty congratulations and prayers for your positive and faith-filled service to His body. Ever though of changing your patron saint to Paul of Tarsus?

    (That my rosary group considers you a must-read for everyone is only one indication of the far-reaching effect you have. Simple words, truth, and clarity of thought mean everything…one of us reading and contemplating reaches many many more people than just the plain stats would indicate…just my insight….)

    Your Reverence, do you use Google Analytics? I like it a lot and provides a lot of information and… it’s free… :)

  7. Mac McLernon says:

    WOW… 4 million! I got excited when I hit 100,000… ok, actually, I got excited when I hit 100, but 4 million is really quite an achievement… and one million since JUNE !!!

    Congrats, Father. Keep Blogging!

    . . .the equivalent of a large city. . .

    Let’s not kid ourselves. We all know there are really only about a hundred of us; we just come here a hundred times a day!

    Kidding! Thanks especially to Fr. Z, but also to everyone who contributes their sometimes-creepy (but always fascinating!), specialized knowledge to make this ‘blog what it is.

  9. Vincenzo says:

    Congratulations Father Z!

    Father Z

    I’ve just bookmarked your site on my toolbar, and I notice there is a little “Z” icon that goes with the text – remarkably similar to the mark of Zorro……

  11. You visitors are the ones who accomplished this!

    Many thanks to YOU!

    Ad multos adventores!

  14. It has and continues to be a blessing for me having found this site. Continue your fine work. 4 000 000 is a nice number may it continue to grow.

  15. mysticalrose says:

    Yay, Fr.Z!!

  16. Aine says:

    Congratulations Father Z and may you continue to grow.

  17. Boko says:

    Royal Flash!

  18. Padre Steve says:

    Very impressive! God is good and so is your blog!

  19. Brian Day says:

    Let’s not kid ourselves. We all know there are really only about a hundred of us; we just come here a hundred times a day!
    Hey! I do my part. I\’m probably responsible for 10,000+ hits myself. :)

    Congratulations Fr. Z.

    Do the stats say how many unique visitors you\’ve had?

  20. Congratulations Father! :-D

  21. Robert of Rome says:

    Congratulations to the Rush Limbaugh of the Catholic Blogosphere!

  22. Christabel says:

    What Bryan said x 10!

    For every one who comments there are hundreds who read, and not only among so-called “traditionalists”.

    I prefer the word “authentic”.

    The word is out, Father – anyone who wants to read AUTHENTIC Catholic teaching goes to your blog.

    God bless you and give you great joy in your work.

  23. Peter Esser says:

    Huh! It’s from Flensburg … which is a diaspora region. That’s another good aspect, father. You are strengtening Catholics who don’t sail on the Mainstream River. Thanks for that! Peter

  24. Michael says:

    Fr. Z. What about being made Cardinal and Head of the Holy Congregation for Blogs?

  25. AWashingtonDCCatholic says:

    Congratulations and Kudos on a job well done!

  26. This is a fantastic site and one from which I have learned much.

    Kudos on a job well done!

    Congratulations on your achievement, Father Z!

    Although, to pick up on comments earlier on this thread: Four million site visits is a superb achievement, but it shouldn’t be confused with a different metric, unique visitors.

    I’m here practically every day, so my site visits number, oh, several hundred at least. The same applies to a whole bunch of other regulars here. All of us would claim several hundred (at least) of those site visits.

    Therefore, when you get to the 4,000,000th unique visitor, now that will be an achievement.

    Corollary of that: You should be able to figure out how many of your visitors visit every day (or week, or whatever). Figure that out, and you’ll see how big your regular readership is. That’s a useful metric, possibly more so than site visits or unique visitors.

  28. PMGrath: I think that is unique visitors. On Stat Counter, which I started later, I am also closing in on 4 million in the unique visitor category. For page loads/visits we have many more.

    “The Schleswig-Holstein question is so complicated, only three men in Europe have ever understood it. One was Prince Albert, who is dead. The second was a German professor who became mad. I am the third and I have forgotten all about it.”

    Well done Father and thanks

  30. Ubi Caritas says:

    Wasn’t flensburg the last vestiage of the third reich at the end of the Second World War?

    I’ll have to check my history, but I’m sure that when Hitler died, having appointed Doenitz as his successor, the Doenitz administration was pushed back into a corner and effectively controlled no more than a small area and a small amount of troops. This was, of course, only for a matter of days before the inevitable surrender came.

    Just a small trivia factoid there :)

    Congratulations! That is a marvelous achievement.
