Yikes! It's been weeks since I've posted. The family is in our new home, along with the stepdaughters' menagerie (two dogs, two cats, three fire-belly toads, one tree frog, and a paralyzed beta, as well as one visiting rubber boa). The new house needs some work, but it's nice to be a homeowner again.
I mentioned a story that was floating around St. Blogs a few weeks ago about a local priest who wrote a reader's editorial in the local paper favoring gay marriage. As I mentioned I would, I wrote a letter to the bishop noting my concerns about this event and a number of other problems in the local parishes.
I finally got a response today. One of my requests for ways to address the problem of liturgical abuse was to grant "the indult" to a local parish. (I provided a number of suggestions, as it doesn't do well to gripe and not offer any solutions.)
He recommended that I try St. George's Parish in Post Falls if I'd like to attend a Latin Mass.
Let's see... Post Falls. Here are the driving instructions.
A mere 750 miles away. We'll pack up the kids at 2:00 AM and head out. No need to worry about breaking our fast if we don't stop.
Or maybe he's trying to tell me something?
