    On Pentecost Sunday, the first child of my closest friend and his wife was born, a daughter named Chloe Marie. It is such a blessing, especially after their apartment flooded in hurricane Harvey (costing them many of their possessions, including irreplaceable ones) just a few months after they were married.

    My youngest son is engaged to a wonderful traditional Catholic woman. I am very happy for him. God has blessed our family.

  3. Having relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area to southern Florida 143 Sundays ago, I have been liturgically malnourished.
    The nearest traditional Mass to where I live is in Miami, over 100 miles and 2 to 2.5 hours away (one way). The other nearest opportunities range from 143 to 225 miles away. So prior to this past Sunday I had only attended the Traditional Mass about four times over these past 143 Sundays. This past weekend I made a pilgrimage to Sarasota, FL (313 miles away) as a 72nd birthday gift to myself. There I attended a traditional High Mass at Christ the King Catholic Church. I had a glorious day and I felt ready to die without being given any notice. Now that’s the best feeling anyone could possibly have. That gift (being blessed to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the traditional form) was my best birthday present ever. I wish the same for everyone.

  4. Gregg the Obscure says:

    I had the privilege to recently attend three concerts of outstanding sacred music: (1) Dr. Peter Kwasniewski’s polyphonic Mass; (2) pieces by longtime Sistine Chapel Maestro Lorenzo Perosi; and (3) the Bach b-minor Mass. The Bach is too lengthy to be used in an actual liturgy these days, which is most unfortunate.

    Thanks to the wonders of Catholic medicine (Napro) my husband and I are expecting our first child this side of heaven (I miscarried our first in February) on January 1. Deo gratias!

  7. New Sister says:

    We (USA) were in charge of the Marian Procession at this year’s International Military Pilgrimage (PMI) to Lourdes. The weather forecast (& our USAF meteorologist) gave a certain prediction there would be moderate rainfall throughout, which would have really made it a disappointing & unpleasant experience for the 18K pilgrims who processed with candles, plus all the musicians assembled in front of the Rosary Basilica.
    We started calling all the delegations to help us pray away the bad weather and specifically asked Saint Medard (found on Google) to intervene/stop the rain. We paid him in advance w/ a Rosary… not only did it NOT rain, but we (USAF meteo guy too) were amazed to see the skies clear, stars appear, & a perfect moon to hand over the steeple…. & no wind (good for candle light processions). THANK YOU St Medard. NOTRE DAME DE LOURDES IS A GREAT MOM!!!

    My brand new goddaughter went home from the NICU.
    Our Bishop is going to say a pontifical Mass and lead our Corpus Christi procession on Sunday.
    The high fevers of two of my boys has broken and we seem to be fever free!

  10. Discerning Altar Boy says:

    After a trepidatious search and enrollment process, I ended up loving my freshman year of college. I found a cheap, secular state school with top notch faculty/programs AND a vibrant but small Catholic community staffed by FOCUS missionaries. Our chaplain is a closeted traditionalist, wearied day by day by our liberal neighboring and host parish. I have been able to help convince him to restore the sacred and implement his vision of a true sense of the necessity of a good devotional life. Next year, we will celebrate the OF ad orientem on a regular basis, and introduce the EF in an organic way. As our Genial Host would say, we are rebuilding what was destroyed, brick by brick.

  11. Irish Timothy says:

    Today I went to Eucharistic Adoration, Confession & Mass!

  12. Michael says:

    I attended the Archdiocese of New York’s Priesthood Ordinations last week. They were blessed with nine new priests! [five for the Archdiocese and four for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal].

    Blessed be God!
