A 25% increase in traditional Catholicism in Menevia

An amazing statistic that became apparent yesterday after Mass.

Concrete boots, a present from the Bishop - how thoughtful

A new family has joined the congregation (ambitiously estimated, on a  good day, with a fair wind in its sails) as being 24 good souls and true.

So we now have a traditional cohort of thirty. Huzzah and Hooray!

Just when it appeared as if we were in the doldrums with no new life in sight, we have six new 'parishioners' - a 25% surge in our numbers.

Of course, if you are in a city parish, this must appear to be very small beer but to us it is great news and we thank the Almighty for His providence.

If I also told you that this is a great family, strong and firm in their faith and outlook on life....I would not be telling a lie.

I now await the congratulatory telegram from the Bish.......could it possibly be the two fish wrapped in newspaper that arrived this morning?


  1. I suspect that there was some solid prayer that made this happen.

    Brilliant news.

  2. Ask the Bishop to come and offer Mass for your parish.

  3. Is that a photograph of a Spirit of Vatican II altar?
