Please join me in praying for  Father Z on the anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood twenty-five years ago.

Seriously. Pray for him.
Offer Mass for him.
Pray the Rosary for him.

May God send the Holy Spirit to touch his heart and open his mind (and loosen his cheeks just a little bit.)

Be kind.
Practice charity.
At least for this day.

5/26/16 UPDATE:  So Fr D fecked up...again.... because he thought the BIG 25th was on the 25th. (See Dr Phil, I'm not as obsessed with Fr Zzzz as you think!) And all of you regular readers (and readerettes) were SO nice and so restrained with your kind comments. Thank you. We will call that the Anniversary Vigil.  

That being said, have at it.

This morning I read several calls on a blog from someone (clearly from Wisconsin) purporting to be from “the Latin Mass Society ”, who started making stupidly invasive statements.
Friends, legitimate calls for financial support do NOT come from out of the blue on alleged clerical blog post  and tell you to do things.
NEVER NEVER NEVER do what these people ask or offer.

Also, plea$e know that this blog is under con$tant attack.   I will need some real help real $oon to correct some thing$.

MY VIEW FOR A WHILE:Little Piggy Westward Edition

I am on my way home after a few great days in Washington DC.

I LOVE Uber!

Airport burgers review Ben's Chille Bowl.

It's only after you order and pay that they tell you it will more than ten minutes. Really? At an airport?

Chille on it.

Small… okay… took a long time… not as meaty as the Uber driver... worth it? Half a shrug.  I won’t go there again.
My unsatisfying lunch was supplemented in the club.

I am at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

As you can see, the emphasis is more on prayer than it is on breakfast.

Father D is wasting away.

The brethren are not impressed.

Even our Auxiliary Bishop,  Sayedna Edna (that's what we call her when she's not around) wasn't impressed. (And Edna is easily impressed. Talk about a dim bulb.)

What's going on with you?

READY THE FAINTING COUCH: Women Deacons to be Considered?

(Pope) Francis said May 12 he agreed the matter should be given more careful consideration, telling hundreds of nuns from around the world that he himself always wondered about the role of deaconesses in the early church. - See more at:

Are feeling beaten down and battered by too much mercy and love lately?
I'm not.
I'm feeling inspired by it actually.
I've just begun reading and digesting the post  synodal exhortation. Why must they be so long?
I'm not going spout off until I'm done reading it.
Anyone read all of it yet?

The Krazy Konverts seem to be having koniptions as expected. 
More later.

THEIR VIEW FOR A WHILE: Suffer the Little Children...

Suffer the little children that come unto me.
Or something like that.

I don’t think it is an actual law of physics that two objects can’t occupy the same space at the same time, but rather a law of frequent airline travel. I am, however, being asked to defy this law and occupy the same space as the bulkhead and the arms of the seat.
Is it Newton’s 3rd Law of the Leges Motus that says that when one body (e.g. mine) exerts a force on another, second body (e.g. the bulkhead, etc), the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body?  I think Newton underestimated the second body in the case of frequent flying.

Miracles do happen morsels. Every time Father D can pry his ample arse into an airplane seat is proof positive.  Now if the little  bastards children around me would just shut up!

What's your view?
