“He [Satan] will set up a counter-Church which will be the ape of the Church because, he the devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the anti-Christ that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ. In desperate need for God, whom he nevertheless refuses to adore, modern man in his loneliness and frustration will hunger more and more for membership in a community that will give him enlargement of purpose, but at the cost of losing himself in some vague collectivity.”
“Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops.”
- Fulton Sheen

That way I have steady income I can plan on, and you wind up regularly on my list of benefactors for whom I pray and for whom I periodically say Holy Mass.
In view of the rapidly changing challenges I now face, I would like to add more $10/month subscribers. Will you please help?

"But if, in any layman who is indeed imbued with literature, ignorance of the Latin language, which we can truly call the 'catholic' language, indicates a certain sluggishness in his love toward the Church, how much more fitting it is that each and every cleric should be adequately practiced and skilled in that language!" - Pius XI
"Let us realize that this remark of Cicero (Brutus 37, 140) can be in a certain way referred to [young lay people]: 'It is not so much a matter of distinction to know Latin as it is disgraceful not to know it.'" - St. John Paul II
Grant unto thy Church, we beseech Thee, O merciful God, that She, being gathered together by the Holy Ghost, may be in no wise troubled by attack from her foes. O God, who by sin art offended and by penance pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of Thy people making supplication unto Thee,and turn away the scourges of Thine anger which we deserve for our sins. Almighty and Everlasting God, in whose Hand are the power and the government of every realm: look down upon and help the Christian people that the heathen nations who trust in the fierceness of their own might may be crushed by the power of thine Arm. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. R. Amen.

I added you on twitter Fr. and trying to spread the love :)
I don’t tweet but am considering it. How does Twitter differ from Facebook? Among other social sites, I use Facebook and LinkedIn. I notice that some use Twitter to update Facebook profiles.
Both Twitter and Facebook can be updated via mobile phone.
So is there an advantage to Twitter in comparison to Facebook?
I think we need to promote the #Catholic hashtag, so if anyone is reporting on anything church related, tag it. Anyone care to follow me? twitter id: Jdskyles
Maybe my confusion can benefit others.
I signed up but I’m flummoxed by the search. How does one search for others on Twitter? I’m only presented with searches of gmail, msn and specific web-based mail services that don’t fit the email addresses I want.
Again, I’m not sure what the advantage to Twitter is! :-)
Can anybody give me some ideas?
I had the same problem until i finally discovered Twitter’s search buried down in the footer navigation. It will let you search in all the normal ways you would expect. No idea why they put something that fundamental to the functionality of the site in the footer. As to the difference between facebook and other social networking sites, Twitter is basically a place to post random thoughts whereas the others are fully functional SN sites with friending, photo and video uploading, groups, gadgets, etc.
Yes, I tweet (and probably twit as well. At least my wife calls me one regularly :-)) and I’m one of your 183 followers.
I plurk. Still not sure why I prefer it over Twitter.
I’ve been following Fr. Z ever since he became a Twitterer! :-) I have 107 followers and I follow 184 Folks, most are Catholics and many are priests, deacons and nuns. If you go to my page at http://twitter.com/deaconjohn1987 you can click on the followers pix and check out their profile and then follow them if you like. Then when they see you following them, they might follow you but there is no guarantee that any one will! Enjoy and have fun, meet new and interesting friends from around the world!
i can’t figure out how to add Fr Z to “following”
I do tweet
Is twitter so hard to set up or is it just me? Thanks to Doug, I searched for and found Fr. Z, but now like Jim, I can’t figure out how to follow him.
OK, color me blind, but NOW I go back to the twitter.com/fatherz page and see the Follow button. Right under his picture. Large and everything.
I’m a twit, but I don’t tweet. I have enough to update and
keep track of as it is without adding one more medium to the mix.
@Doug Thanks! Couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to find people w/o being sent back to the “search my contacts” page. I’m on now and following fatherz.

@James How do you use the #Catholic hash tag when posting a tweet?
