Merry Christmas and thanks from Fr. Z

So many of you have enriched my life by participating here during the last year.

Thank you.

I will say one of my three Christmas Masses for all those who have been benefactors through donations or who have sent me items from the wish list.

I will also remember at the Memento of the Living all those who participate here, and at the Memento of the Dead those who have participated here and have passed away.

Peace to you, and joy, for a grace-filled Christmas.

    A merry and blessed Christmas to you from Austria! And a heartfelt thank you for all the time and energy you put into this blog, which is one of the best sites of any kind on the Internet.

  17. Mary Conces says:

    Thank you, Father Z. and a blessed Christmas to you. Your wide-ranging blog and, even more, your insights into Catholic Truth and treasures have been a tremendous solace to me in a year of bereavement. My poor prayers go up for you almost daily.
    I, too, am snowed in, here in Battle Creek–mainly because the county lacks funds for tertiary roads in times of heavy snowfall. Thank God, His star shines everywhere.

  36. Laura Lowder says:

    Father Z – How I thank God for you! Through your work at COL you helped to prepare me for reception into God’s One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church six years ago. Through your diligence you helped me to know the difference between what is orthodox and reverent and proper, and what is heretical and trite and banal. Your ongoing work on this site and elsewhere continue to help me to grow in grace and virtue. God bless you richly during this Holy Season.
