    I attended the Romney /Ryan rally in Commerce MI this week and a real highlight for me was when the Pledge Of Alleigence was recited, everyone said the line” One Nation under God”, noticeably louder than the rest of the pledge. there were about 10,000 people there,many of them children.You did not hear about that on the networks.God bless us.

    I decided not to go to Cursillo next month.

    We’ve just learned that our daughter and her husband are expecting their first child in late April!

    My youngest grandaughter just started K4 at All Saints and loved it.

  5. Martha in SD says:

    My two girls and 8 other friends from two families put on two plays that I directed and we worked on over the past six weeks. We put it on in our backyard, made our costumes out of things we had (kids doing most of their own),invited the neighbors and some family and friends, and had perfect weather (thank you, Lord!). People really enjoyed it. The most common comment was, “Wow, people just don’t do this kind of thing anymore. That was fun”. Very old fashioned, but I think maybe we need to get back to that, eh.
    Congrats to “demigh” on your upcoming grandbaby. Life is a beautiful thing!

    I managed to successfully learn French Knitting, (and also made a homemade French Knitting spool as well) after watching You Tube videos which showed me how.

  7. Diane at Te Deum Laudamus says:

    Assumption Grotto in Dettroit now has just one altar – the high altar. A new home was found for the low (table) altar. Now, our Masses, all celebrated ad orientem whether older or newer form, feature processions straight to the high altar without walking around the table altar. In my post is an iPhone shot from Friday.

    just woke up after having got home from the LMS Walsingham pilgrimage last night

    Middle dog Ruby was bitten on the paw by a venomous snake – after two weeks of treatment she is All Better and returned to her work Saturday none the worse for the layoff.

    First staff meeting of the academic year today and looks like we have a wonderful staff who will work together effectively. Wonderful to have all employees getting along and no apparent problems or complaints for the time being. Probably easier to do in a smaller place, but still there have been difficulties in the past and it is good to have a fresh beginning.

  11. JayDeee says:

    Got my nerve up and started the Catholic photoblog I have been thinking about! Inspired partly by Diane at Te Deum, Fr. Lawrence Lew, and others.

  12. Cafeam Fruor says:

    I’m starting vacation! It’s been almost a year! Woo-hoo!

  13. cmcbocds says:

    My IP address was liberated from the dog house and I can access WDTPRS again! Thank you, Father Z!

  14. My part-time teaching job came through for another year which means that my three girls get to go to Catholic school again this year.

  15. And speaking of their school, I received THIS email last week!

    Dear Friends of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form in North Carolina:

    Joyful news! With thanks to Almighty God, I’m happy to announce that the MEF/TLM will be offered in Greensboro at Our Lady of Grace Church beginning 14 Sept 2012 for Triumph of the Cross, and then every Sunday beginning 16 Sept. Please go to my blog for the details.

    Wonderful homily on vocations, all kinds, from our new associate pastor, followed by a trip to 2016, the movie. Yesterday was true experience of solid formation and real education.

  17. Mary Jane says:

    Our polyphony choir has started rehearsals for Vittoria’s 6-part Requiem, which we will sing for the Feast of All Souls.

  18. lelnet says:

    The fine art of homilitics is returning to prominence. And also, more and more parishes seem to be using the unabridged readings.

    Yay! :)

  19. Skeinster says:

    The alcove in which our Infant Jesus of Prague resides was painted the same rusty red as part of the sanctuary, which means that there will be more lovely golden stenciling there. We continue, little by little, to beautify our church.
    And, in two weeks our new priest arrives, so hopefully fewer Mass cancellations.

  20. JMGDD says:

    Skeinster, I believe you and I attend the same parish…;) Glad someone else caught the reference to a new priest–I was beginning to think I imagined hearing that. As for my good news, I am profoundly grateful to be back at the TLM after a lengthy absence.

  21. Benedict says:

    An announcement will be made soon that the Dominican Friars in Washington DC will offer a Mass in the Dominican rite in the main chapel of the Dominican House of Studies. One of the friars will also be offering tutorials for the student brothers in the Dominican rite. Recently Dominican rite Masses were celebrated in NYC & Columbus and many others in the Western province.

    The new novices for the Eastern province Dominicans have started their novitiate; please remember them in your prayers.

    The newly professed friars have arrived to the Dominican House of Studies and they already started classes. The community is now 80 friars. There are 64 friars in formation & numbers are up in the other provinces as well.

    Dominican vocation video made a couple of years back just surpassed 20,000 hits. All together (including other media) it has been viewed over 30,000 times.

    The Dominican Nuns in Marbury, Alabama just celebrated a Solemn Profession of one of their sisters and they have others coming behind her in formation. (these nuns never changed the Divine Office from the Latin)

    Deo Gratias!

    My son and I visited my mother in her summer house and had a great time. I found an old german copperplate engraving from the 18th century, depicting (the dead) Saint Peregrinus rising from his coffin to give a blind man his sight back. Very moving, infact. He did what?!?!!, said my three year old :-))

  23. I have found work in Coeur d’Alene, ID

  24. Bea says:

    My niece visited Friday with her husband, father and step-mother. (my sister passed away in 1997 and my brother-in-law remarried).
    She brought me a book of the generations on my mothers side, that she , herself made. 312 pages long. Awesome. pictures, charts all the way back to the 1700’s.

  25. ocleirbj says:

    Our little grandson N. is home again after many weeks in hospital and finally getting a gastric tube put in last week. Of the 7 months since birth he has only spent about 6 weeks at home, and we hope that he will be able to stay there now. He is doing very well!

  26. VexillaRegis says:

    A thing I have long dreaded to do turned out to be really easy done.
    An old and very dear friend is coming to see me soon. Hooray!
    And mass on sunday will be sung in latin (OF).

  27. VexillaRegis says:

    Edit: easily, of course. Sigh.
