    I’m a university chaplain in England and plan to introduce the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite to our Sunday Masses here – not sure yet how often. I’m hoping it won’t be too much of a jolt, since all our Masses are already ad orientem, with Holy Communion kneeling. I think the silence is what people will most notice, and I trust this will be an occasion of opening up the Divine Mysteries to them.

    One of the mothers at my parish started a girls group, Handmaids of the Blessed Sacrament. (kind of a junior sacristan program but with a lot of focus on prayer)- Our priest has been so supportive. He has given two beautiful homilies at the First Saturday Mass before our meetings. So thankful for Father T.

  3. Batfink says:

    My priest told me that he would like to learn how to celebrate Mass in the EF and offer it in our parish, Deo Gratias!

    He will need a lot of support though so I ask for your prayers…he does not yet have the backing of the parish priest and hasn’t mentioned it to anyone else.

    The Blessed Virgin has answered my prayers and is protecting me from the evil one. That is very, very good news.

  5. Philangelus says:

    We finally forced the school to admit that my son needs an IEP, and they’re going to actually provide services. I’m in shock. This is like an act of God. Part of this was that on just about 24 hours notice, the doctor who performed the testing on my son was able to be part of the conference, and she fought them whenever they tried to downplay his issues.

    Only 18 more days until the c-section! I will get to meet this baby and see if the ultrasound tech was correct as to gender, I will get NOT to be pregnant anymore!!!!!! I am sick, this whole pregnancy I have been ill. Not life threatening but miserable! ONLY 18 more days to go to meet a baby who is expected to be healthy! :)

  7. DavidJ says:

    My in utero son is now kicking hard enough to be felt by people other than his mother. My 5 and 4 year old daughters are absolutely enthralled by getting to put their hands on mommy’s tummy and feel their littlest brother kicking. My 2 year old son, predictably, doesn’t care, but that’s alright.

  8. Andy Milam says:

    Bishops do listen. I contacted my bishop, R. Walker Nickless to thank him for taking a strong stand on HHS and Obama. He responded, directly to me.

    If you are so inclined, for whatever reason, contact your bishops, they do listen.

    Here is the email that I received from him;

    I Just got My new annotated copy of the Code of Canon Law,it arrived at Thursday morning and I brought it the next evening. DEO GRATIAS!

  11. Benedict says:

    The Dominican Friars of the Eastern Province will celebrate a Mass in the Dominican Rite for the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas (old calendar) at the high altar of St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Manhattan on March 7.

    There also will be scholarly talk on the evening of March 6:  “Beyond Dogma: St. Thomas & Postconciliar Modernism” with Fr. Guy Mansini OSB.

    My sister-in-law is now 25 weeks pregnant and looking and feeling very well.

    By 8pm tonight I should have been to 2 Low Masses and 3 Missa Cantata in the last 8 days. Not bad.

  13. Justin_Kolodziej says:

    Good news? Let’s see: The sun came up, I woke up, my wife woke up, our son woke up, her mom and twin sister woke up, I am guessing her brother woke up by now though I cannot confirm that at this moment. I got to work without incident, my work is progressing well.

    The more important good news: The Lord Jesus Christ came to save balloons filled with hydrogen bitterness who explode in flaming fury when poked the wrong way by the slightest disagreeable spark. Or maybe I am more like nitroglycerin? Anyway the point is that if I am bumped the wrong way or too many times I explode and that is what I need saving from.

    On Friday, I was going to confession, when I realised that the church was unexpectedly closed (not altogether unreasonable, but a long story nonetheless). However, the priest who was to be hearing confessions braved the sub-freezing temperatures and heard confessions outside. (Throughout the Continent, we have been experiencing a very cold spell of weather.) It was a small thing, but it made a big difference, and was also very edifying and inspiring. So huzzah to him, and to Confession.

  15. I woke up today to give glory to God for yet another day!

    New Job after 15 months of looking

  17. John Murray says:

    Went to Mass Sunday expecting the usual Low Mass (EF). Surprise! Padre, the MC, several servers, and an excellent choir combined to celebrate a High Mass. My guess is that it was the first High Mass in this parish since the Endarkenment of 1966. It was beautiful and must have taken a lot of work. Father chanted very well, hadn’t heard him sing before.

  18. APX says:

    I survived my interview on Thursday. I’m pretty sure I got through at least 100 Hail Mary’s while sitting in the lunch room for 30 minutes waiting for my interview, as they were behind. As a result I went into it calmer than I had ever been before. No awkward sweaty palms either. Lol! It was actually a pretty good interview given how worried I was about it and not having to go through an interview since 2008. Now to wait two weeks for the results. It would be nice to get hired this time around, but I know there’s at least 5 permanent positions coming up, and more rumors of retirements happening. I figure of this is where I’m supposed to be In life, it will happen when it’s time for it to happen. So far everything else has fallen far too easily into place for me here.

    The travelling Statue of Our Lady of Fatima is spending the week at a parish in my city. Adoration and the Rosary are scheduled for every weekday.

    I think that church bulletins should include a list of contact info to Senators and Reps in DC for its parish members to use.

    My parish offered blessings for St Blaise’s feast day. There were four lines – 3 priests (including the Bishop in my diocese) and one deacon. :) :)
