In the (digital) pages of the UK’s best Catholic weekly, I saw this in the classifieds.

Maybe I should apply!

    “Knowledge of the traditional Catholic environment” LOL

    I’m always interested in the amount of advertising the Methodists seem to do in the Herald. I remember an ad some months ago about some flats with spaces for young adults, and when I looked it up part of the obligation was to attend services regularly at the sponsoring Methodist church.

    Stay where you are, unless you get a position in Rome, the real center of the world, and London second. You are seriously overqualified for this position.

    Up early this morning to deliver my son to his HS for a field trip to NYC to see the Cloisters (knew you’d like that). While driving back to the house in the dark, it hit me – today’s my wedding anniversary! And, of course, that illustrious day each year coincides with yet another – your birthday.

    So, may I be the first? Ad multos annos, Father!

    Interesting to read Julie f’s comment regarding advertising by the Methodists in the Herald. I have not yet seen this weeks paper but last week and in previous weeks there has been a prominent advert for an ‘Evangelism Spirituality and Discipleship Officer for the Methodist Church’. Each time I see it, it seems so strange in a Catholic newspaper. Presumably they would want a Methodist for the job but would they want a Methodist who reads the Catholic Herald?!

    Were you really born on the Feast of SS. Simon and Jude, the latter the Saint of the Impossible?

  7. Liz says:

    Happy Birthday, Father. I will say some extra prayers for you at mass later today and with our rosary.

    God bless and thanks for all that you do.

  8. Supertradmum says:

    For your cheap pressie from me, I offered up Mass for you (and two dead moms), plus my entire day. As I had to walk one mile in torrential heat and one mile in the pouring rain, I considered that an extra blessing for you. I am really learning to count it all joy–it is actually fun and I hope I do not sound like a masochist. HBD. Hope you get some better pressies.

    Happy Birthday, Father Z!
    Your name is ‘tacked onto’ an extra Hail Mary at the end of my daily Rosary!
    Ad Multos Annos!
    I’m with Supertradmum; stay where you are for now, and if a position in Rome comes up, then go for it! ; )

    Happy Birthday, Father! Hope you’re enjoying your day. Today is also my cousin’s birthday.

    Apparently knowledge of Latin is not required…

    Each sounds like a dream form of employment advertisement to this reader.
    No fair hiring he who may, due to slavish accuracy of translations and frank commentary, forgo smooth running of day-to-day activity for a seriously productive diversion.
