Another post providing more dots to connect. What they mean and how they line up and where they point… who knows. I suspect that we are entering the phase when the Church will begin to shine with the light of the Lord’s Passion.
In France, attacks on Church’s are becoming more frequent. Officials say they don’t know why. Yeah, right. There was even a fire set in Saint Sulpice in Paris, which I often visit when there.

In Montreal, on a priest was stabbed at St. Joseph’s Oratory during Mass on Friday morning – today as I write. Pray for Fr. Claude Grou, whose injuries were not severe but certainly troubling.
Meanwhile, the numbers of Masses in the Extraordinary Form continues to rise.
- My friend Fr. Shawn Tunink in KC, KS, has worked up what sounds like a fine celebration of a Solemn Mass for the Annunciation, 25 March, in Leawood, KS. HERE
- In Boise, there is now a regularly scheduled TLM at St Paul Catholic Church in Nampa, Idaho. HERE
- In Santa Barbara area, Montecito, CA, at the beautiful Our Lady of Mount Carmel – I was just there a few weeks ago to speak to a Legatus Chapter and I visited that lovely church – there will be a monthly TLM. Hopefully more to come. HERE
