Update on Fr. Dana Christensen, warrior priest

Some of you have written to me to ask how Fr. Dana Christensen is doing.

He is doing great in that he is offering his sufferings to God in a truly priestly way.

Fr. Christensen has a new entry on his page.

Giving Up The Ghost, Going to Confession, and You

    There aren’t really adequate words to talk about Fr. Christensen.
    May Jesus and Our Lady be near him every second of every day. Surely they are.

    God bless Fr. Christensen, a living example of 1 Cor 16:13.
