Fr. Z’s Voice Mail or ¡Hagan lío!

I have had a few voice mails recently, some from the USA and a couple from the UK.

I generally don’t return calls, but I do get your messages.

  • To the person in Buffalo, NY last week, yes, profanation of the Eucharist is a problem.  I think that Communion in the hand has led to widespread ignorance, and irreverent apathy about the Eucharist.
  • To the person in Park Ridge, IL, yes, I heard that news too.  Not good.  Alarming, as a matter of fact.  I’ll keep my ear to the ground and check with my people.
  • To the fellow in the UK yesterday, thanks!  That means a lot.


To the US Navy fighter pilot who called in… you are welcome, and I really appreciated your kind words.

I enjoy getting voice mail.  I like to know what you are thinking.  Even the hate mail makes me chuckle, especially from the cowardly loser who uses some sort of artificial voice generator to leave the occasional hysterical philippic.  Friend, start taking your meds again.  Please?

Anyway, since I pay a fee for the phone numbers, I am glad when they get some use.  I have occasionally thought about how to integrate the audio into posts, when there are good questions or comments, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

TIPS for leaving voice mail.

  1. Don’t shout.  If you shout, your voice will be distorted and I won’t be able to understand you.
  2. Don’t whisper.  C’mon.  If you have to whisper, maybe you should be calling the police, instead.
  3. Come to your point right away.  That helps.
