Is it time to talk about a Manhattan Blognic?
Someone suggested perhaps Easter Monday.

“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.”

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.

Darn, can’t make it next Monday… everyone who can, best wishes!
Could we do an encore after the Holy Mass in D.C. on 24 April?
I should certainly come unless unavoidably prevented. What part of town would be most convenient? I gather from Father’s posts that he is not inconveniently far from the Thirties.
I could make it, barring a funeral that day.
Besides Monday, what other days are possible?
I have out of town company that day, unfortunately, so would not be able to make it.
I’ll wait for the Houston Blognic to make my presence.
A Manhattan blognic on Easter Monday would be great! I would enjoy seeing you and others while I am home from college on Easter break. Some friends of mine would enjoy the opportunity as well. Keep us updated and have a blessed Holy Week!
I would be very happy to attend and celebrate Dyngus Day!
I think I might be able to swing a Monday evening…Working on LI though, puts me in the Manhattan around 7, 7:30, with that brief pitstop home in Queens..Where and when?
Monday sounds like a good day.
Fr. Z, I hope you could come to DC on Apr. 24 to attend the Pontifical High Mass in EF at the Basilica Shrine, you will meet many priests of our Archdiocese who are planning to attend. I will also bring my parishioners.
I cannot make it, but I would love for you Father Z to come to the Greater Cincinnati area. :)
Monday would be fine for me. Any day that week other than Tuesday, too.
Two Fr. Z encounters in two months. Deo Gratias.
Ah! I’m in town for Easter and Easter Monday and might be able to actually swing it if it’s in the afternoon, depending on family obligations.
So, are we getting some consensus about an early evening blognic on Easter Monday in Manhattan?
I’ll actually be in NYC for Easter. It’s tempting, but I think I’ll be on the road headed back home by Monday. Unless, of course, it’s a blognic breakfast. Safe travels, Father.
Oh, I’d love to be in NYC for the blognic, Fr. Z-but I sure wish that someday you could come to the Upstate part of New York and have one up here!
Perhaps some concrete suggestions:
5:00 pm (they’re not open before then) at Top of the Strand
I’ve not been here, but the location seems convenient and the reviews (Yelp and Google) seem encouraging.
4:00 pm at The Ginger Man
I have been there, and remember it as being spacious with a very nice selection of beers, though the service was unspectacular. Yelp and Google
4:00 pm at Keen’s
Not at all cheap—though one can certainly find more expensive with no trouble—but one-of-a-kind. A very good place for traditionalists! Yelp and Google
I would go, and I am shore other NJ residents would cross the bridge/tunnel as well.
Early evening Easter Monday works for me!
How about Ulysses’ tavern on Stone Street in the Financial district? http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/ulysses01/
I mean the Ulysses on Stone street — not the one on Pearl.
I truly hope I am not out of line when I invite all to an event on Monday at Annie Moore’s…it is a good place for a Blognic, plus an excellent opportunity to hear a great speaker, have a drink and some food!….again- hope I’m not stepping on any toes!!
On Easter Monday, April 3rd, Fr. John Perricone will give his 2nd talk in the Dogma and Spirits series titled: “Is same-sex marriage a civil right?” The talk begins at 7pm and will be conducted in the lower dining room of Annie Moore’s restaurant, just outside Grand Central Station. The talk is sponsored by the Agnus Dei Knights of Columbus and is open to all.
The dining room will open especially for us at 6pm, so you can come early for dinner and drinks. Note, you can also order dinner during the talk. Though our first talk last month went swimmingly and was well attended with 30 people, Annie Moore’s requires a bigger [and hungrier/thirstier] crowd than that. In essence, we need to make it worth their while to open the lower dining area. Invite a friend or family member and consider having dinner and drinks with us. It’s Easter Monday, and during the octave we should celebrate in grand fashion.
Thank you in advance – a Happy Easter to you and your family.
Has something been decided as to exact time and place? As for me, I should find it helpful to know the details fairly soon (arranging work schedule) and perhaps others are in the same position.
Miss Gallagher, with regard to the talk by Father Perricone, does one need to advise anyone in advance of one’s intention to come, or just show up? Thanks.
Please just show up and enjoy! It is technically free, but most people donate a few bucks to Fr. for his efforts….I think the suggested is $5, but again, that is your call…feel free to give more!
