Five Things

Father Dwight, who spends a considerable amount of his time upside down, has tagged me for 'Five Things I Love About Jesus!' A little strange, I have to admit, because reasons 1,2,3,4 & 5 would be - "He's the Second Person of the Trinity,"......but here goes:
1. He is the image of the unseen God
2. He was entirely consistent
3. He left us His Body and Blood
4. He challenged and comforted
5. He gave all those who believe in Him the hope of everlasting life (thanks, St. Paul!)
I tag Fr. John the South Ashford Priest and anyone else who is interested.

Fr. ,
Absolutely loved your column in the Tribune this issue. I can't wait for your upcoming series. It is my ferverent hope and prayer that you are playing the "helmsman" and setting some course corrections at the direction of the captain :) .

The Captain is in charge - some of the sailors are sailing the ship in the wrong direction - and don't want to be told - but the Admiral in Rome is giving the clearest direction!

Amen!!!
As a lifelong member of this diocese and a devotee of the Liturgy I cannot express how happy that makes me.
I must confess that canon1753 while quite discreet lead me to that perspective.
Your reply almost put tears in my eyes!
I have made Fr. Z's slogan mine;

Save the Liturgy, Save the World
