A Blog Milestone and a Mass for Benefactors

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.

Thanks everyone!

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.

    Does one poor person who prays for you daily on her rosary count as a benefactor?

    Congratulations Father! Ad multos annos! Thanks for all you have done for us; helping all of us to understand the beauty of the Extraordinary Form and the Church’s ancient liturgical traditions. And not least for introducing me to the Lewis & Short dictionary…

    Congratulations, Fr. Z. Forty million satisfied customers! I had my eye on that counter the last few days. I wonder who was the 40 millionth served? You have my gratitude for all the good work you do for your virtual flock and for Holy Mother Church. You are in my prayers daily.

    It would be interesting sometime to hear about your humble on-line beginings.

    “Ash Wednesday is NOT a Holy Day of Obligation.”

    It SHOULD be.

    Dear Father Z,

    Thank you for doing so much to instruct so many about the truths, practices and “goings on” of the Church. Your blog was especially important in the days of the poorly translated English missal, and became even more important with the papacy of Pope Benedict. I wonder where you see your blog headed now? [Good question!]
