“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.

Oh, Fr. Z, that truly is priceless!
So tonight’s family discussion at dinner was if any of us had figured out what the “A word” was that was mentioned on an earlier post. Discussion went on to the fact that we had never heard of Septuagesima & that we had been taught that basically the period b/t Ash Weds. to the first Sunday of Lent was “Pre-Lent”. Read Fr.s post on Septuagesima. Further discussion about why the loss of this in the NO & then the dinner discussion concluded with asking if anyone had been thinking about the sacrifices they were going to make during Lent. I was considering Catholic blogs.
A year ago, I was mildly award of their existence. Now wdtprs.com is my home page & I’m on it bit too much to the demise of good mom-things, like reading aloud to our little ones & getting dinner fixed on time. Our older kids showed me this receipt as a reason I shouldn’t give up, at least this site, up for Lent.
“We want you to get to heaven, Mom and we like Fr. Z as our daily’e-pastor'”
They also don’t want to get salmonella poisoning. Before today I was pretty lax about cleaning the cutting boards after preparing meat on them.
Does anyone know if there is a search function for this blog?
I’m trying to track down a hilarious “Caption” call from a year or so ago with Pope Benedict looking up in the sky with a uneasy look on his face and someone suggested a caption along the lines of “look, up there, the spirit of Vatican II.”
It was hilarious, but I cannot find the page.
No advice, Nick, but I remember laughing quite hard at that one. Hope you find it!
I was thinking about your “tasty recipes” while browsing “From a Monastery Kitchen” and “Twelve Months of Monastery Soups” last night–and it occurred to me: What about Food Network? It could be this generation’s Fulton Sheen. And, more likely to happen this way then any Network actually picking up a show by an orthodox priest–you could be covert and sneak in some catechesis between courses.
Oh, that ‘receipt’ is soooo creative-I love it!
Can almost hear the voice-over guy from the MasterCard commercials reading this….
Yeah, it is–priceless!
Lindsay-oooo, that’d be a cool idea for the Food Network! ‘Cooking with Fr. Z’!
…and yes it would be great if wdtprs had a search engine!
You can do a Google search of any website by going to “Advanced Search” and entering the domain (e.g. wdtprs.com). It works a lot better than many search engines on the sites themselves.
