I usually don’t do politics–too many broken promises, hearts and people–but I couldn’t resist commenting on the charade of this new American icon.

The curious gaze at the wax likeness of His Holiness. It was made at the Tussaud studio in London, England. The figure will be transported to its final destination to the Toussaud Museum in Berlin, Germany sometime in April.

A 5.3 earthquake centered in northeastern Lebanon Friday, February 15 damaged the Temple Mount near the Mohammedan mosque leaving a six-foot deep hole. Too bad the infidel’s temple didn’t crumble to the ground.

Yesterday after Mass a young lady in her mid-twenties, whom I hadn’t seen before, asked me if the Traditional Latin Mass listed on the cover of the parish bulletin, was the Tridintine Mass. I responded affirmatively. She said, “Oh, that would be interesting!”

This morning at the TLMĀ  adorned in a chapel veil (available in the narthex) she knelt reverently for Holy Communion.

My heart was warmed…the fruits of Summorum Pontificum. Thank you Holy Father for this gift you’ve given to a young lamb of your flock.
