iPadre #316 – Interview with Monica Fitzgibbons (Benedictine Nun’s Lent CD)


Lent at EphesusIn this episode, we talk with Monica Fitzgibbons, cofounder of De Montfort Music. Monica tells us about the Benedictine Nuns latest Lent CD. The Sisters have toped the music charts for two years in a row, and I have no doubt, they will do it again with this new album. See the video of the Sisters on my blog.

IMPORTANT: THREE major Catholic media sources publish SAME response to Card. Kasper!

Something highly unusual and highly important happened today.

An opinion piece, the same opinion piece, was published simultaneously in three media outlets, the UK’s best Catholic weekly The Catholic Herald, the National Catholic Registerand ZENIT. Two print and one internet only.  One UK, one US, one “neutral”.  The National catholic Reporter, no… The Tablet, no. Shut out.

I don’t remember anything like this.

The fact of simultaneous release, in “competing” outlets, suggests to me some seriously well-played organization.  In other words: somebody important wants what Prof. Rist has to say to be read and absorbed and circulated.

Prayer for Flight 370

St. Anthony, patron of lost objects

St. Anthony of Padua

So many human means have been in search of Flight 370. At times there have been sightings and little signs of hope, yet nothing has yet been found. There is one saint who has found many things for me, and if we all seek his aid, he will come through for the good of all involved. Please join in this prayer for Flight 370 and all involved.

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that we may find Flight 370 which has been lost. As least restore to the passengers families, and all of us peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of so many souls which has afflicted us even more than  material loss.

To this favor we ask another of you: that we may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let us rather lose all things than lose God, our supreme good. Let us never suffer the loss of our greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

Hope for the future

We all tend to see so much bad going on in the world and how empty our churches have become, but here is a little light in the darkness.

On Friday night Matthew and Mark served Stations of the Cross. On their way home they told their dad that they can’t wait to serve the Traditional Latin Mass.


Today was also Tommy’s 10th birthday. He is my music director’s son. Tommy talks about becoming a priest. He’s holding my gift. Just a little way to encourage vocations. Fran said: “You should have seen him light up when he opened it.” Tommy probably serves more Masses at Holy Ghost than any one. Happy Birthday buddy!
