ACTION ITEM: Survey on Female Deacons

For or against, please take this survey.

Can't have Zzzombies bombarding the survey with their own limited view. 

If you're undecided, read more here for a non Zuhlsdorfian perspective. 

Zzzz thinks Zzzombies are so dumb that he must point out with snark and bile, just HOW to answer certain questions. 

Hey, Father D knows his readers are smarter than he is, so I would never be so bold! 

Wouldn't it be great to see the restored Female Deacon assisting in some manner at the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite?  I think so!  

And if you ever come across a survey by one of the Traditional groups, let Fr D and our loyal readers and readerettes know.  Like Fr Zzzzz , says, we should be as supportive and as helpful as possible.

Hagan lio! Right?

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:
