RECENT POSTS and THANKS and MASS for benefactors

First, please remember to check YOUR URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS:

Some posts as they scroll off the front page:

Thanks are do to reader who have sent items from my wish list!  Among the nice things which came are a disk of The Quiet Man (fantastic with blu-ray and one of the best movies ever made. You can’t beat John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara!), some gun cleaning supplies and targets (I must go kill some paper later), some non-Mystic Monk Coffee (mirabile dictu), Treason: A Catholic Novel of Elizabethan England, lots of Elicoidali (pasta) and San Marzano tomatoes (which I plan on using during our annual summer priests gathering in July – Bp. Morlino is joining us and I am again doing some of the cooking), A DVD of Edith Stein: The Seventh Chamber,
Joseph Ratzinger in Communio: Vol. 1, The Unity of the Church (Ressourcement?: Retrieval & Re?newal in Catholic Thought), and some other greatly appreciated items.  Sometimes things don’t come with packing slips with the names of the senders, but the Holy Angels know who you are, and your angels are always present at Mass.

Speaking of donations, I was hoping to go to Rome at the end of the month for a stellar  conference on liturgy.  Donations are not faring particularly well this month, for one reason or another and I may have to cancel.  I also had to retire my old car, a ’92. It is getting to the wire for Rome and I have to make a decision soon and get on the ticket, etc.  But anything that was sent already and designated for Rome will be set aside, indeed, for Rome.  I keep track. I have a waving VATICAN FLAG around the blog for donations for this trip. FWIW.

Speaking of Mass, I will celebrate Mass for my benefactors on SATURDAY 15 June.  It is a joy and duty to remember benefactors in prayer.  When you send me items and when you make donations using the button on the side bar or other links, I include you in my prayers for benefactors.  Mass will be the Votive Mass “Sancta Maria in Sabbato”.   There is a seminarian staying here at the chancery with us during the summer.  He wants to learn the older form. Hopefully he will be able to serve: brick by brick.
