ALERT: to all priests

I just created a new category:

Mail from priests

Some of the most interesting feedback and news I get is from priests (and bishops) who are readers.

I like to be able to share more mail from priests with WDTPRSers.

If you are a priest, I assure you that I will maintain your anonymity if you write to me.

However, if you are writing about what happened in a public event, such as a solemn Mass or what you said in your sermon on Sunday, I will probably talk about where it was and I will probably include names, etc.  After all, it was public.

But, Reverend and dear Fathers and brothers, I will keep your name and location out of the entries if you request it

The important thing is that you feel free to write in with your observations and reflections, news and insights.

I also hear from bishops from time to time.  If you ever want to say anything to this very wide readership, I will help.

Click here for my E-mail.  If you put something catchy in the subject line, such as "From Fr. …. to Fr. Z" I will spot it more quickly.

Keep in mind that I get an avalanche of e-mail as it is.  I might not use everything I get and I may not respond to your mail right away or at all, depending on how life is going.  You understand, I’m sure.

Also, a request to all WDTPRsers….

I would like to go back through posts from the past and add them to this category.  Will you help?   If you find a post that fits this category, will you send me the LINK?  Or maybe post it here below?  I can add the tags.

Many hands will make lighter work.

    Wow, there are bishops who read your blog? I wonder if my bishop even knows how to use a computer.

  2. A Random Friar says:

    And perhaps we can tag all posts rebutting women’s ordination advocates as “priests from males.” ;)

    Fr. Z,

    Could you post the dates of the entries that you have received so far? Maybe keep the list updated? Would not want to overwhelm you with duplicates. Thanks!

  4. Daniel: Just click the tag at the top of the entry to find which I’ve added already.

    Please assign an alias to each priest whose comments you use, e.g. Father 1 or Father A (“Father Z” is already taken) so we readers can keep each one straight as the list of priests grows. Thanks.
