A couple of notes…
First, this sounds good. Someday I too would like to visit Poland.
A pilgrimage to Lithuania and Poland, with daily celebration of the TLM, is being planned from May 4-16, 2020, under the spiritual guidance of Fr. Neil J. Roy, STL, PhD. Highlights include visits to Vilnius, Gdansk, Torun, Warsaw, Czestochowa, Cracow (the Divine Mercy Shrine and the Convent of St. Faustina), and Wadowice (birthplace of St. John Paul II) among other sites. The cost, including taxes and tips, is CAN 3,640 – 3,420, the lower price contingent on enrolling more than 30 participants. The pilgrimage begins and concludes in Toronto. The deadline for registration is February 4. At least 25 participants are needed by then to make the pilgrimage work. Contact the tour coordinator, Pearl Tam (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information.
This looks interesting.

A Year With Fr. Rutler
Also, have a glance at Brad Miner’s column today at The Catholic Thing entitled “The Other End Of Nowhere”. It grabs you from the start.
One of the traps that libs seem constantly to fall into is that human beings are constantly evolving as a race. In the Church this takes the form of particular liturgical abuses and patent arrogance, especially in regard to the Blessed Sacrament. Mr. Miner gets into the weeds of NYC politics (what a mess that is) and into the circus that is the presidential election cycle. However, his point from the onset is good: “The Enlightenment gave us various forms of Progressivism, which amount, in sum, to the patent idiocy that things are always getting better. They’re not. I may be one of the few who doesn’t believe in pendulum swings.”
Give it a read.
Also, at the always valuable Crisis, Michael Warren Davis has a piece about Andy Warhol. A really interesting figure, not well understood. And his work is seriously over rated. I just don’t get why people think it is art at all. This line is a good indication of where he goes: “He may have been a Christian—but so, too, were the Vandals and the Goths.”
