A note to readers

First and foremost, thanks to all of you who have sent notes of greetings for Father’s Day and also promises of prayers.  I deeply appreciate that right now.

Also, I have received quite a few notes of congratulations for the anniversary of my ordination.  Not sure where that is coming from,. but thanks!

However, the anniversary (20th this year) was 26 May on the calendar. That said, the liturgical anniversary would be today, because 26 May in 1991 was Trinity Sunday.  So…. in a sense, Trinity Sunday is also my anniversary.  So… thanks!

And, please, keep up the prayers!

    Fr. Z: I think you can thank John Corapi for the Ordination Anniversary wishes. Since you mentioned that you were ordained to the Holy Priesthood by HH JPII at the same time as he and, inasmuch as he mentioned today (Trinity Sunday) as the twentieth anniversary of his ordination, it is easy to draw the conclusion that today is your anniversary calendrically rather than liturgically. Mystery solved?

    Well…considering the the self-created paradigmatic ‘virtual’ parish here, Father (and as a commentary on the thirst which most people experience for clear and unambiguous teaching from their local pulpits that they flock here, literally, for what’s missing), it’s only fitting that all of us, in some way, offer their prayers for you as one of our spiritual Fathers.

    I made it a point to offer my new pastor (who finally convinced me that I belonged in his parish…) a happy Father’s Day on the way out…That caused more than a few heads to turn…;) He thanked me for remembering.

    Appropriate that Holy Trinity Sunday has a threefold significance for you this year, father. Congratulations!
