I just may be adding some Masses for them after finishing off the 30 Masses for our Holy Father, Pope Benedict (bringing us to 915!) and another 30 Masses for the priests and bishops who are suffering so much in China. See the Holy Mass page.

But Father! But Father! Didn’t you say before that there were things that, like, needed to be changed, like, now?!
Yep. There are always things that need to be changed. But we always, always live in the family of faith, with its familiar hierarchy, which is always, always to be respected and loved and honored, no matter what. Just because some things need to be changed doesn’t change that at all.
The greatest obedience is sometimes manifested in offering a fraternal correction which may or may not be appreciated. Some may offer thanks for the courtesy of the suggestion, others may… not. But that’s beside the point.

What he has written is enthralling, humbling, exalting, inspiring. It puts me into humble thanksgiving mode before the High Priest of our faith, Mary’s Son, Christ Jesus. HERE!
Father talks about the inspiration to be a priest coming from the movie “The Cardinal”:
He narrows it down to the scene of saving the Most Blessed Sacrament, knowing that, in taking time to do this, they will most certainly be captured by the Nazis:
