    Felix Dies Nativitatis. Merry Christmas, Father Zuhlsdorf. A blessed and joyful day to you. Thank you for the great care for our souls that you have. Especially for always imploring us to go to Confession. Thank you many, many times over. May God bless you and the Blessed Virgin pray for you. And to my fellow readers of Father’s blog, May God bless you and your families today and into the New Year. May God bless His One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church. Glory to God in the Highest and peace to men of goodwill. +JMJ+

    Merry Christmas Father and thanks for this blog, which is the first thing I read every morning as I sip my Mystic Monk coffee. I find that I depend on it to give me a balanced view of what is happening in the Church as well as the spiritual gifts such as the Advent casts,

  9. Merry Christmas to you, Father, and to everyone!

    Merry Christmas, Father!

    My family and I are going to a wonderful nearby parish for Mass–a TLM with a lovely, talented choir and holy priests. (That’s a gift from Our Lord today, as we don’t go there on a regular basis!)

    I will pray for all your intentions!

    A Blessed and Merry Christmas to you, good Father! Thank you for all you do. BTW, I went to confession at a FSSP parish yesterday. Wow, what a difference from the NO parish I usually go to. Father actually listened to my confession and had some wonderful insights to discuss with me. It was worth the long trip to the parish. I am definitely going back for more!

  22. cpttom says:
