Fr John Zuhlsdorf celebrated our 7am Traditional Latin Mass at Holy Redeemer Church. He sings simply beautifully and his homily was good. I thought some would want to see pictures from the reception after Mass. He is a very friendly great priest. Yes of course there was Mystic Monk Coffee, three varieties!
Fr Z will next celebrate Mass here on Dec 23rd. [removed here some INACCURATE information for which I apologize to all]
He comments that his birdfeeder at his new location does not get the spectacular array of visitors that he used to get–many chickadees, not a lot else. However, he shows every sign of being a happy priest.
[Update: some of the good guidance he gave at the start of his homily: Prepare for Advent, which is more about the Second Coming and the end of the world than it is about the first coming of Jesus: go to confession. Do works of charity for the needy. We must do penance. Give alms. We should fast (yes!). Between now and next Sunday, open your Bible every day to the chapters in Luke (12-19? or so?) where Jesus is telling parables, and read some of that each day and reflect on your life and your own conversion.]
Ha! That is a great picture of Father with the Nuns on the Bus sticker. I’m sure it can be easily covered up with one of his “We love our Bishop” stickers.
His preaching was excellent, and his singing even better than I was expecting. He is indeed very friendly: down-to-earth yet incredibly knowledgeable. I am certainly pleased to have the good Father around here now!Permalink
