I’m back!!! January 2, 2011

Posted by Tantumblogo in Art and Architecture, awesomeness, Basics, Latin Mass.

Well, all good things must come to an end, and I’m back, so many of you will have your welcome respite ending.  I was blessed to be able to spend a week at Our Lady of Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Al, with the good Poor Clare’s of Perpetual Adoration and the Knights of the Holy Eucharist.  What a blessed trip!  So many graces….I felt like Blessed Louis Martin – I wanted to shout out “it is too much, Lord!”  If you ever get a chance to go to Hanceville, take it!  We went last year, but this year, somehow, was even better.  The weather was very cold, but aside from that, it was great, stupendous.  The only downside on coming back is that my knees are sore.

The best part?  The singing….heavenly.  Truly amazing at times…..I was really carried away, transported, as it were.  The Mass, too…..a full Latin Novus Ordo in some cases, a part Latin/part English in others, but all celebrated with supreme reverence and great care.  It’s amazing what a difference taking just a little extra time with the Consecration and attention to detail during the entire celebration can make.  This is the only video I could find of the nuns singing – this doesn’t do justice, I don’t think, to what I heard:

A local angle – the most recent postulant with the Poor Clares is the daughter of a St. Mark parishioner.

I will try to post pictures early this week.  I look forward to getting the blog running again – this is the longest break I’ve taken from blogging since it started!

I pray everyone had a blessed Christmas and is still enjoying this wonderful season.   5 more days of Christmas to go!

Sir, forgive me for asking this question here, but I couldn’t detect any other way to contact you. In your June 1st post on the Seton conference, you wrote, “Tom Ulrich from Catholic Relief Services is a big proponent of instituting government policy to radically change the economic system of many nations in order to combat anthropogenic global warming cooling climate change.”

I run a blog similar to yours, based in the Archdiocese of Washington. It is http://restore-dc-catholicsm.blogspot.com. I have received word that Mr Ulrich is going to speak at an ADW-sponsored event and would like to warn/educate people regarding his mindsets. Do you have substantiation for your above statement – preferably a url that I can site in my own blog? Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Janet –

I’ll have to dig it up. Usually when I make a claim like that, I have a link, but I’ll have to go find the post and read through it again to see if there’s a link. I did do alot of research on that guy and some others, and he is deeply involved in the Catholic Climate Covenant (which is hip deep in the AGW hokum) and other links to many global warming groups.

I’m really swamped right now, I may need a couple of days to get back to you.
