Goodbye!


It seems clear to me that it is time to say goodbye - this blog has clearly outlived any usefulness it might have had. I post so infrequently that nobody can be blamed for not looking at the blessed thing. Blogs have always seemed slightly self-indulgent - unless a good number of people say that, for whatever it is worth, in some way, not for my own glory, but that it actually helps their Christian journey, I think that the Feast of St. Joseph will be the time for Funeral orations for the 'Owl of the Remove.' Ciao.

Oh, NUTS, FAther. Who CARES if you post infrequently? It's a different voice out there and each voice adds to the symphony. You don't always hear a zylophone, but when you do, it's SPECIAL.

DON'T DELETE the blog if you must take a break.

I agree. Please leave the blog there and I really hope you don't stop completely. I often read it and find it helpful. I'm sorry I haven't commented.

Most people read through readers these days, so it makes no difference how often someone posts - or rather, if someone posts very rarely, then I am more likely to look them up when I see they have posted. fwiw. :) It's only a blog - it doesn't need feeding, shoeing, worming and mucking out when you're not using it. Ours comes and goes, as people feel like writing or not.

Gem's right Father. As they say in the North-east, 'Don't do it!'

Stay with us. You're a priest. We NEED you. Have a rest but do come back!!!!!

Noooooooo... Please don't stop blogging, however infrequently. Karen is right. We need you!

I agree. Your literary humor will be missed, and anyway, I follow you on Google Reader and it delivers your post to my screen without having to search. The only work is on your part.

Dear Father

Looks like you do get readers! You are both witty and incisive. Are you sure you won't stick around?

you remind me of those days long ago when I read Tanqueray and learned about emotional types. It's too bad Tanqueray knew nothing of Ayurveda, but he made some good points about temperment nonetheless. I'm just not sure whether you need pat on the back or a boot lower down, but get on with it. Americans need to know about the great English Catholic writers of the past century.
