    After years of praying……I am finally expecting!!!!!!

  2. un-ionized says:

    I’ve gone a long time without any sick days. And I can often use stairs now. And I am less fearful of things like falling. And the job is going great. So now I can help take care of other people better and forget about myself.

  3. Tinidril says:

    In a couple of hours, my daughter and I will be leaving on a 10 day pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes, and Paris. This is the dream of a lifetime for me, and it was a gift to us from someone very dear to me.

    I will be praying for you, Father Z, and all the readers of your blog, and please pray for us that it’s a fruitful time for us (especially for my daughter, who is not practicing the Faith currently), and that we get there and back again safely.

    The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest will be establishing an Oratory in Detroit next month:

  17. jaykay says:

    The organist/director of our church choir has specified, in the programme for the coming year, that we’ll revive some of the Latin settings we haven’t done for … yonks. Practices start again next week, after a summer lay-off. Very much looking forward. Exultemur.

  18. jaykay says:

    Aargh… meant to say also: the Irish Dominican Province had 8 ordinations to the Priesthood recently.

  19. jservello2000 says:

    We are bringing “ChristLife” ministry series to our parish, St. Augustine Parish in Ossining, NY. I am a member of the “core team” and am very excited about getting involved in speaking and teaching about Our Lord, Jesus Christ… First and foremost, always front and center in my life always!! Praise be to Our Lord Jesus Christ, Now and Forever!!!

  20. PA mom says:

    Our nearly defunct Mom & Tots group received a new member who suggested that we try a bible study during our meetings. We found Walking With Purpose, which is a bible study series specifically for women, and are starting Opening Your Heart. The bible study has 5 daily readings and questions which take about 10 minutes, one which focuses on a saint.

    From 2 regular attendees, we currently have 8 signed up, several who are not even parish members! Everyone of us is thirsty to know the Lord more deeply, and I can’t wait to see how we all grow from this.

    AND, our new, newly ordained parish priest wears the Roman style vestments… And one of those extra pieces on his arm… I am going to let him know quietly that he has my support if I can be of any help to him.

  21. Melissa Johnson says:

    My boss is making moves toward ad orientem in a archdiocese not disposed to tradition. Pray for us.

  22. Melissa Johnson says:

    I would be interested in hearing how this is implemented!!

  23. Melissa Johnson says:

    Happy anniversary, Father!!

  24. frjim4321 says:

    Ran 7 miles on Sunday afternoon and 5 miles today in the glorious sunshine. After a seven-year rehab. Tomorrow is swimming, so hope to swim a mile and then lift for an hour and that will be it for the exercise until Friday. Happy to be alive and able to do all that.

  25. DetJohn says:

    The Vatican Exhibit at the Regan Library was great. Well worth the 70 mile drive. The Library is also great.

    Happy anniversary Father.

  26. un-ionized says:

    Fr. Jim, glorious! Oh, how I miss real exercise! Almost like being an athlete type exercise! I used to bike bike bike. Wedgie, recumbent, no matter, just bike bike bike. Now I can go to bed remembering and have wonderful dreams, thank you.

  27. Nan says:

    I received good news in a comment here! Thank you ASPM Sem for discerning your Vocation at the college seminary and crossing the street to continue.

    Congratulations KT, may the Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around you and your little one.

    Congratulations Father on the anniversary of your ordination. Thank you for heeding God’s call.

    In good news for the Air Force Abp Broglio got my Byzantine priest, who enters in a couple of months. Father tells me the Eparchy of Parma has a surplus of priests so there’s a replacement out there.

  28. LarryW2LJ says:

    My wife had to go to Denver, on business, for a week. She got there and back safely, thanks to the Lord.

  29. Charivari Rob says:

    The good news was in response to the bad news – the particularly tragic and unexpected death of a college friend, predeceased by his wife a couple of years ago, leaving three school-age children. The good news was a beautiful funeral Mass, the pastor (an OP) who hit the mark squarely with his homily, and a lot of people coming together to support the children (both in the moment and providing for their future).

    I’m also grateful that Hermine largely gave my friends & family in NJ & NY a pass last weekend.

  30. KateD says:

    Some of our family who were stuck in Hurricane Newton are now safely home.

    Thanks be to God!

    My second and third novels will be coming out this winter…I need more sales, so please consider all of , , right now my only source of income, and not much yet….

    The Jeweler’s Polish, a historical fiction set in Malta, came out this summer

    The Beast, the Prophets, and the Victory, a fantastical tale on the anti-Christ and the Second Coming, comes out this winter

    Anne de Migny, the real sequel to the first one, set in the late 18th, early 19 centuries in Malta, comes out this winter.

    I have two more finished, which I hope are eventually accepted, one on the last eleven Catholic bishops of England during the Protestant Revolt, and another one on the Last Stuart..pray those get accepted as well.

    Also, am working on murder mysteries. a very, very hard task….have one long one and eight short stories mostly finished but not tidied up and not all “done”….

    Prayers please, as these would be my bread and butter….
