  1. The Sicilian Woman says:

    Kill list…Pfft. Her cat’s an amateur, compared to mine. Though today was the first time in a while that she tried to bring one of her kills into the house.

    (And how did I not know until today that Pope Emeritus Benedict loved cats?)

  2. Rich Leonardi says:

    In the fourth grade, I won the “Most Spirited Bowler Award” for rolling up the lowest score.

    It’s a bit like MF’s designation, I’m thinking.

  3. majuscule says:

    I like her cats’ names.

  4. Fr AJ says:

    Love the cat names! That’s great!

  5. Mariana says:

    Loved the names of the cats, Liturgical Chicken and the Traddy Wymynpriest!

  6. lucy says:

    Liked her blog. Also liked that I found The Rockin’ Traddy through her as well.

  7. Allan S. says:

    Question: Father, she describes herself as being in “private orders“. I was unable to successfully research this. Are you able to provide some explanation or teaching on what, exactly is the nature of “private orders”, the form(s) they may take, and what type of ecclesiastical approbation may be required?

  8. Fr. Z – once again, many thanks for spiking my stats. I don’t deserve such attention (but I do rather like getting it!)

    If I may answer Allen S…I do not describe myself as “being in private orders,” – I have taken private vows, which is very different. Anyone may make a vow before God, and the “private” designation just means that they are not formally accepted by anyone in the Church (as opposed to the vows taken by Religious.) I’ve made the vows before God, in the presence of friends and my Spiritual Director. I consider them to be permanent but technically they could be dispensed, I think.

    You can read more about the particular vows I’ve made by typing “vows” in the search box on my blog. I hope this clarifies things.

    You’ll be even happier when they’ve added those animals whose name shall not be mentioned but which begins with an “s” and ends with an “l” – or two :)
