That or bring in one of the dozens of priests who've left their diocese to just say the TLM, to live there as a pastor. 


I'm always so moved by this witness.  We have a few such priests in our area who have done the same thing.  Takes courage and sacrifice.  This phenomenon should also encourage trads that there exists real passion among the clergy, even diocesan clergy, for Tradition.  We need to do what we can to support such priests, morally and practically.  I don't know how we do the latter.  Would such a priest, above, living as pastor be financially supported by the TLM attendees?  Truthfully, I don't know how such priests survive now, either.

There needs to be a website where these priests in limbo can network and receive donations.  There's just not enough room for all of them to join the FSSP or SSPX.  I know of two such brave men in my own local Church, myself Miriam.  A growing sub-movement of the wider TLM movement.

I think this is an idea which needs more consideration.  Materially aiding these priests is very important but I suspect they are rightfully afraid to be publicly outed.  Is there a way to benefit from this without basically handing over a list to the Vatican of whom to defrock?

Welcome back, Chris. Thanks for helping my pal move and watching his kids.

Sure thing.  He rewarded us with pizza that day, and when meeting a local trad friend at an English pub he even bought me dessert.  Though it seems his own dessert may have been reportedly the culprit behind GI distress later that evening.  There are hazards of all kinds moving to a state still reminiscent of the old Wild West.  On the surface here, see, people are rugged and cantankerous in a relatively benign kind of way, but deep down we Okies are salt of the earth.  Generally speaking.  Yessir.

Noice.

Ja whol.  I tried to impress our new transplant to the Heartland by asking our British waiter (whose Yorkshire accent, and personality, reminded me actually of Greg) to invite the old British woman who owns the pub to visit our table, and try out a series of semi-profane British jokes on her.  She laughed it up, but my new friend-in-the-flesh only chuckled a bit.  One tries.  ;)

But we did polish off the cheese plate, and had a pretty good time.  Even took a pic of the guys standing next to a life size cut out of the Queen.  I have a pic of it on my phone.

I don’t know. Time for us men to man up. Do what’s right in our work and let the chips fall where they may.  Fr Rodriguez is the best example, IMO.

As was Henry VIIIth...but I think Gardener chuckled even more when I asked the owner if she was Church of England or Roman Catholic, and when she said Church of England I asked “is it okay for us papists to visit your pub?”   She herself laughed understandably “oh yes you are welcome too.”  Bob’s your uncle, Heinrich.

What the hell.  Greg and Jayne broke their self-perma-ban. 

I did not break my word to only post as often as Greg did. 

I am writing this post because I am reasonably sure that Greg is posting here under a different name, Maxim Gun.  You are dropping hints about this, Chris, including the above.  Do you actually know this or are you just speculating based on the similarities of style and views?

(If I am wrong about that poster being Greg, then I will continue with the original agreement and give Greg a free post to make up for this one.)

I could bet money that Maxim is not Greg

MaximGun as Greg actually fits pretty nicely.

I think their writing styles are sufficiently different.

I do wish you both would end your exiles.

The Ghost of Christmas Future appeared to me in a dream last night.  He showed us all getting along here, including Greg and Jayne!   The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.  And Mr. Edwards showed up with tin cups and candy canes for the little Ingalls girls.  'Tis the Season to be jolly!  And to forgive!
