……..if I had appended this to Friday’s post:
I had a hard time finding a video of that song that wasn’t wholly immodest. I do enjoy that opening bass riff.
Sorry for the drama. It was not intentional. I found that little letter from St. Francis de Sales right before I had to leave on Friday, I typed it up in Word and just pasted it, already running late. I did not mean to cause folks any concern, I simply didn’t have the time to provide the customary preface/conclusion to the text. I may have also had a subconscious thought that it had a great deal more impact if I just left it stand on its own, but I guess because I never envision just walking away like that, I didn’t consider the conclusion that could obviously be drawn from leaving a post of a sort of goodbye letter hanging.
So, sorry again. As I replied to one reader over the weekend, rest assured, if I start feeling like quitting I’ll give plenty of notice. I have no plans to do so. I still enjoy it quite a bit, though it’s not as easy to do as it was for a number of years. For now I plan to keep ‘on truckin.
BTW, I guess I/we just continue to be lucky in our local FSSP parish, but our new priest delivered a very forceful criticism of Guadium Et Spes in his sermon yesterday. It was very specific and really more than a criticism, more like a full-on denunciation. I was barely able to restrain myself from standing and doing fist pumps. That makes 4 of 7 priests assigned since 2010 who have publicly criticized/denounced Vatican II in clear terms. I understand there is a divergence of opinion among Fraternity priests regarding both the doctrinal correctness of the documents of Vatican II or the prudence of criticizing them, but in my experience I have seen quite a bit of willingness to say those things that need to be said. Maybe that is one reason the local parish has experienced such phenomenal growth.
After some of the discussion from the comments last week, I found the timing of this sermon most providential………
