20 years of Popery and counting ...

I forgot to mention here that Holy Wednesday was the 20th anniversary of my reception into the Church back in 1993 by a wonderful African-American priest of Madagascan ancestry, Fr. Wilbur N. Thomas (now Rector of the Basilica of St. Lawrence in Asheville, NC). It has been a journey down roads full of unwanted pot holes and many surprises, but a journey I never once regretted. It has been one of the single most important decisions of my life.

Philip,

Congratulations on such a wonderful anniversary. I will observe my 19th anniversary on All Saints' Day this year.

I find myself thanking God frequently for His many gifts: my life, my Catholic faith, my wife and our children, the sacraments and, most recently, the Traditional form of the Mass and the sacraments.

God bless,

Chris

Wonderful. I don’t remember the exact date but I returned in either August or September 1989. I too can say “It has been a journey down roads full of unwanted pot holes and many surprises, but a journey I never once regretted.”

Pax et bonum,
Donna

Congratulations, PP, I hope your students have the sense to heed your example, which is that of a man who has been tried out and found true. That is a doofus-poetic way of saying that you are a good egg and I hope the mushheads appreciate it.
