Your Good News

Do you have some good news for the readership? We could all use some.

For my part, I understand that the Jesuit homosexualist James Martin, LGBTSJ, mentioned my name the other day in a talk at a parish in NYC. He was vaunting himself, having met with Francis a few weeks ago for a photo op that he has since marketed into some sort of street cred. More on that HERE.

That’s good news, because it means that he is paying attention. And if he is paying attention, then he can’t claim ignorance about issues such as can. 915 and scandal and his responsibility as a priest. HERE My hope is that his better angels will guide him, eventually, to start telling the whole truth to the community he claims to be serving, but is in fact misleading. Anyway, that’s my sincere hope. He has also attacked me in underhanded ways, and so I pray for him.

In other good news, I have started to finalize plans to visit the DC area and participate in what I think will be a splendid Mass at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on 16 November. More on that HERE. There should be an exhibit at the National Gallery on Verrocchio. And, of course, friends in the area who are always wonderful.

Also, a priest friend alerted me to the fact that he obtained a couple of the relics I was searching for. Yay!

So, there is good news.

    Yes, indeed! I finally found a job in my own field at age 62. That seemed impossible these days until St.s Joseph and Jude stepped in to intercede. Sending heartfelt prayers of thanksgiving!

    Now begging for a job for my husband.

  2. L. says:

    My first (of many, I hope) grandchild is a healthy three-month old. He had some worrisome health issues when he was born but he had the benefit of many, many people praying for him and now he is perfect. The only thing wrong with him is that he lives too far away, but we should get to see him again at Thanksgiving.

  3. LeeGilbert says:

    Finally, after three years of work the book I’ve been working to re-publish, a spiritual classic out of print since 1830, is available on Amazon. This all came together on the Feast of St. Teresa, and there is good reason to suspect the prayerful support of several Carmelite convents. Now, the marketing phase . . . .

    For those of you who would like an introduction to Canon 915, with reference to current events:

  5. Greg Hlatky says:

    After several months unemployed, I started a new job yesterday. Thanks be to God for sustaining me and my dear wife for putting up with me.

  6. FN says:

    I mentioned some time ago here that my young daughter was having an awkward time in confession because the priest did not ask for an act of contrition. Shortly after that, a different priest began to take confession at our church, and he does ask for the act of contrition. Problem solved by Providence! (And please join me in praying for the other father, as he is very old.)

  7. RosaryRose says:

    Our Priest is willing to learn the Extraordinary Form of the Mass if I can get funding, people interested, materials, etc. Praise God!

    I am cancer free! Please pray my chemo brain can stay focused to get item 1 done.

    I went to Lourdes with the Order of Malta in May. I am forever grateful.

    Praying for Fr Z and everyone.

    Mother home from the hospital after the better part of a month.

  9. Ms. M-S says:

    First the good news: We have the beginnings of a Latin Mass Community in a corner of this portion of our state, one which has been more famous for clownish and destructive unorthodoxy than its opposite.
    A suggestion for FN and any other parents wanting to ensure their children make a good confession: In this diocese, it’s a good idea to tell your children to conclude their recital of sins with “for these and all my sins I am truly sorry,” just in case.
    And for Jesuit James Martin and anyone else so unfortunate as to need it: Pray for the conversion of heretics. Pray for the confounding of wolves in shepherds’ clothing. Pray for the rebellion of misguided sheep.

  10. APX says:

    Our Latin Mass Community just had the first Confirmation and Pontifical Mass in the EF in the province since the reforms.

  11. Gregg the Obscure says:

    My wife’s Alzheimer’s disease is expressing itself in less disruptive ways than it had been. While there is still terrible confusion, the anxiety and hostility have subsided for the past two weeks. Likely due to reduction in anxiety, her digestive problems seem to have resolved.

  12. JustaSinner says:

    Go in for foot surgery on Friday. Slight amputation—one toe and joint—from bone infection. Good news is we caught it early. Will be back at work and in the gym by Monday.

  13. Kevin says:

    My wife and I are going to Rome tomorrow!

  14. Ave Maria says:

    My parish provided us with a TLM both for All Saints and All Souls Day! My first TLM requiem. The priests come from out of town for the high Masses but a local priest can offer a low Mass.

  15. mysticalrose says:

    I have access to the TLM daily and it is the best gift I have ever been given.

  16. SuperTrad says:

    The resident Deacon at our FSSP parish was just ordained a priest, Fr. Rock. He had well over 600 people show up for the ordination and reception afterwards (although he spend almost the entire time inside giving first blessings lol). He was ordained by Bishop Schneider!

  17. Diane says:

    Thank you for your prayers. I have now returned home after my extensive surgery. I am told I have six months of healing to look forward to. I will make it a point to check in here often during that time. Hope you had a great birthday Father!

  18. Diane says: extensive surgery

    Thanks for the update! I am sure that many of the readers here will stop and say a prayer for you NOW. And the birthday was great. Thanks.
