Mary Month of May!

News around town:

Archbishop John C. Nienstedt is now, as of today, officially, the Ordinary of this Archdiocese! Please keep His Excellency, as well as retiring Archbishop Harry J. Flynn in your prayers.

Tomorrow morning at St. Anthony of Padua the Chant Schola (Hey, you guys need a name!) consisting of a few local bloggers of the male sex is chanting at the 8:30 a.m. Mass. I've been told that this is their second to last performance before they pack it in for the summer (slackers! :-)) A Holy Hour with Rosary, Benediction and Confessions begins at 7:30 a.m.

Quantitative Metathesis sucessfully defended her Master's thesis! Stop over at her blog and congratulate her!

A reliable source informs me that Terry was spotted on Penn Avenue North and I-394 mapping out his plan of attack for the Bryn Mawr Garage Sale event tomorrow. It's astonishing to me that Terry was: a) recognizable, b) out in public, c) stood still long enough to be recognized before he ran away.

I'm glad Abp Nienstedt has come into his own. I don't envy him his job, though!

Redneck: You aren't kidding. He's going to have a serious test coming up soon. Actually, he's already being tested.

Father, at Mass tonight, said we must pray for our new Ordinary and we owe him respect. Just so. As you said, he's going to have a tough ministry.

Many prayers for your new bishop. Hope he stands up to the challenge.

Say, that Chant Schola sounds like it's right up my alley!

Tom: Totally! It's music, it's good for your health, and you can meet new people. Too bad you can't chant while holding Little Critter. :-)
