Happy New Year to each and every Reader and Readerette!

You are appreciated and for those who comment regularly I am even more grateful for your humorous and sometimes intellectual contributions.

What a year!
Father is looking forward to 2017 with eager anticipation.  I am certain the Krazies, both Konvert and Kradle, will give us plenty of material to mock and parody.

You will all be crumb on the diskos on the First of January.
Pray for  Father D (and Reynaldo who has been a bit under the weather as of late.)

May each of you find true Joy and Peace in the coming year.

Just before midnight we learned of the passing of Father D's old confessor Father Francis Xavier Mulcahy.

Fond memories.
R I P William Christopher.

Father D is visible in this photo from the Surfing Santas Day at Cocoa Beach. Can you spot him?

Is that a potato in your pocket or are you to see Us?

Annual Prelatial Potato Gun Shoot at the FSSP seminary. Holy boys playing with manly toys.

And don't forget Father's Useless Hats For Primping Chaps Drive.  These boys need the proper costumes for their Live Action Liturgical 1940's Reenactment gatherings.

What better way to thumb our noses at the Holy Father than to help young budding soon to be preening priests look their best.

(Remember boys to hide your toys until after the Chrism dries on your hands lest you be deselected and forced to search out a Roman Subterranean Diocese to ordain you. It's not the easy path. )

You know folks, Father D has an anniversary around this time too. Yes the blog was launched at the end of November after the retirement of Father's long time mentor and short time blogger The Right Reverend Monsignor S. Guy Blathering, P.A. KHS. Monsignor Guy has been living out his retirement at the Bishop Vinny De Jim Beam Home for the Bewildered in the Diocese of MeTouching, named in honor of the very prelate that ordained him, the third Ordinary of MeTouching.

To make a short story long, Father celebrates the anniversary of this blog whenever he damn well pleases. My blog. My rules. Deal with it.

This year Father has chosen December 10th. Yes. Today.  Congratulations, gifts, adulations, gifts, your thanks and GIFTS are somewhat appreciated.  (Especially ca$h and items from Father's Amazon Wishlist. )

Why the 10th of December you might be asking? Well one of Father's best pieces appeared that day. Father Was a Flautist.  Warning. NSFW.  One of Father's most shared and laughed at posts from of old.

Have a beer and a piece of cake in celebration.  Or not. It is the Nativity Fast or Advent some of you call it, afterall.

Making America Great Again by Making Expensive Vestments Overseas!

The end of the tax year is coming and surely you are thinking (like all smart men) about ways to avoid paying taxes charitable giving.

Like my hero and political idol, Father believes we can Make America Great Again by having expensive brocade and lace tat made overseas. Surely no American tailor or seamstress is capable of work as fine and as detailed as that of Gamarelli in Eternal Rome.

We're having Pontifical Drag Shows Masses pretty often and the Gold Set that you saps kind readers helped pay paid for is getting many hours of usage.
Needless to say,  we need a white set. And we need YOU to pay for it. God wants this. It's good for you.

So once again you can do your part in making His Grace Bishop Morlino, the Extraordinarily Large Ordinary look Great Again by swaddling His Grace in only the finest White brocade nappies hand stitched by a Pontifical Tailor.

Oh yes, your donation to this slush fund is tax deductible through the 501c3 Latin Mass Society of Greater Madison of which I am czar president.

And while you're in the giving mood, consider sending Father  a Christmas Card.   If you cannot afford to send a check or postal money order, be sure to stroke Father's ego with a note stating how much you enjoy reading Father D's Blog, olim What Does The Priest Really Do All Day.   That will make Father's day.
