At sometime this morning, we hit the 40 million visits mark.
That’s 40 million since I started keeping stats, which wasn’t from the beginning.
In any event, it’s a milestone.
And in thanksgiving especially for you donors and those of you who have sent items from my wish lists, I’ll say Holy Mass for the intention of my benefactors and their fruitful Lent on Ash Wednesday at 7 pm CST (0100 GMT 19 Feb). It will be a Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form at the chapel of the Bishop O’Connor Center in Madison, WI. Not, perhaps, the “last chance” Mass in the city, but helpful especially for those who work during the day. Of course, ashes will be imposed.
Ash Wednesday is NOT a Holy Day of Obligation.
