24th Anniversary of Ordination

On June 13, 1992, I was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Louis Gelineau. Where have all the years gone? Please pray for me, my classmate Fr. John Soares and all who celebrate the anniversary of ordination on this day.

I will celebrate a Low Mass at 5:00 pm, all are welcome.

Look at that picture. A lot has change in 24 years!

Return of the Gypsy Moth

In 1981, the whole Northeast had a massive infestation of Gypsy Moths. There were places that the sides of buildings would be covered and you could hear them popping as you drove down the street.

I think this is going to be another one of those years. I noticed them all over the walk when I arrived home on my day off. As I was working in the woods, I could actually hear them eating the trees. You might think that is an exaggeration, but if you stand still for a moment and listen, you can hear them eating away at the trees. It almost sounds like soft raindrops hitting the leaves.

Here are a few pictures.

Another week and all the leaves will be gone

IMG_6351The Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite has so many details. These details are not just superfluous incidents, but ritual acts with deep signification. The whole of the Extraordinary Form teaches the Catholic Faith. If you want to know more about your Catholic heritage, listen in to these five episodes of the iPadre Catholic Podcast.

 

Low Mass on the Feast of the Sacred Heart for benefactors
