I’ve heard talks by Father Joseph Tuscan, OFM, Cap before.  He’s a very good traditional priest who endured his download (31)share of suffering. I’m sure you know what I mean.  He’s a good man.

He will be offering a mission at Mater Dei parish in Irving from Feb. 15-19 at 7pm each night, followed by a Holy Hour:

Fr. Joseph Tuscan, OFM Cap. will be offering a Parish Mission for Mater Dei Latin Mass Parish during Lent. The mission will be held every evening from February 15th through the 19th at 7:00 PM; each talk will be followed by a Holy Hour.

There is no cost to this mission. Donations will be accepted.


Monday: The side; The Heart of Christ, the Church; Why be Catholic?
Tuesday: The right hand: The Holy Mass, Prayer and Devotion
Wednesday: The left hand: Sin, Repentance and Mercy
Thursday: The feet; Evangelization and Mission
Friday: The Crown of Thorns; The Glory of Jesus and Mary

Fr. Joseph Tuscan, OFM Cap. will also be preaching the Sunday Masses on February 14th.DSCF1073
I will note that the mission talks do overlap with Mass times on Wednesday and Thursday, unfortunately.  I love missions and all forms of catechesis, but the Mass is the Mass, and for me, trumps everything else.
Posting was a bit light today.  It may be for some time.  I’m getting busy again at work.  Another painted face hussy intruding into my relationship with my first love.
That’s a 3 pound copper heat sink.  We’re cooling a 100W FPGA, and another 40W device.  We’re running out of ability to cool devices by air.  There are still some things we can do – heat pipes, vapor chambers, maybe even fans on the heat sink itself – but another 2x increase in power and I think we’re going to have to look at liquid cooling, which has always been verboten in telecom.  We’ll see.
My wife is doing well.  I suspect we’ll be having the baby within 3 or 4 weeks.  Thank you for all your prayers.  This pregnancy has been a miracle in our lives.  Pretty old to start with a new baby, but God will provide, as always.

I suppose keeping the room tempurature whet the equipment will be located a cool 52 degrees isn’t viable these days. We had to wear foul weather coats in the tech control area of the crypto equipment…back in the day 🌹
