“Given that Rorate Coeli and Shea are mad at Fr. Z, I think it proves Fr. Z knows what he is doing and he is right.”

toasting Father’s recovery with 2 fingers of Balvenie 18, and warm wishes to everyone here, especially our host, for a fruitful and blessed 2016.
Good news. Look forward to Monday evening EF Mass with Fr F when he’s back in form.
Excellent news, thanks be to God. I haven’t got any Balvennie but I can celebrate with a decent Italian Red.
Thanks too, to you Father for keeping us informed.
You’re doing great Fr. Finigan! Hang in there. :)
First Friday today. We honor the Sacred Heart. Good day to have heart surgery.
Half a dram of Johnnie Walker Green Label (15 YO Blended Malt) in honor of Fr Finigan’s continued recovery. Perhaps I should ship him some California Heart Medicine (wine).
Father Z, thanks for keeping us up to date.
A speedy recovery to Father Finigan!
I’m praying for Fr. Finigan. I have heart trouble on all sides of my family. The heart pumps 2,000 gallons of blood a day–take care of it; it is a gift from God, not to be taken lightly.
Hurray for Father Finigan and his doctors! Get well soon!
I suspect that having strong lungs from regular singing and chanting will help his recovery. But let’s keep praying for him!
Good news about Fr. Finigan. Prayers for his speedy recovery.
