Dear Fr. Finigan and Fr. Z, my prayers and heartfelt thanks for all you do and sacrifice.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph 6. 10ff
Grace and peace to you both.
How wonderfully apt. I couldn’t express it any better. The best words are waiting for us if we know how to look. So I’ll just second the inspiring text you have quoted – and read the rest of it.
Be not afraid!
I couldn’t ‘pound’ Fr. Finigan….but I want to say ‘thank you’ to him and to you, Fr. Z, for all you both do to help us struggling and starving sheep!
Many, many more years of faithful service to Our Lord and His Church!
Thanks again, Father Z for giving us a way to help Father Finigan! May the Lord bless both of you for your care and support of the Church, her children, and her liturgy.
I’m glad that Father Finigan will offer the Mass for us… I can really use it right now.
Thus says the Lord: And unto him that poundeth thee on the one cheek offer also the other…mass (the EF!)
Will the Bitter Pill be there to take photos and names? Just kidding. What a lovely thankyou from Father Finigan. Tom
Tom: Will the Bitter Pill be there to take photos and names?
Fr. Finigan has just posted photos of the solemn Mass set of rose Roman vestments he used these proceeds to purchase, and announces that they will be used for an EF solemn high Mass on Laetare Sunday (March 22). Seriously, the Tablet will surely not want to miss the photo op of such a glorious occasion, especially inasmuch it is a direct result of their coverage of Fr. Finigan’s fine liturgical work.
Henry Edwards, I hadn’t thought of it that way. The Tablet and its authoress should be very, very pleased with the fruits of their labors! Tom
