I am grateful to all who have sent me cards, gifts, and messages; and promises of Prayers and Masses.

I will say Masses for all my benefactors.

My medical advisers have given me less 'negative' news than they managed in August! I get the impression that they are surprised I am still here to receive any 'news'! If a merciful God is moved by Prayer, Glory to Him! Glory, anyway!

Thank You all; and may God bless you all.

Dear Fr. Hunwicke,

I hope no idea that you are feeling infirm. Please be assured of my prayers for your very good health. My sincerest best wishes to you and your family. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Thanks be to God. Glory to God in all things. You have been and will remain in my feeble prayers.

Glad you are still here, Father.

The power of prayer should never be underestimated.

You and yours will be in my family's prayers as this Christmastide and into 2024.

Deo gloria!

Prayers for you, Father, especially at a High Mass tomorrow in Northern Virginia, USA, sung beautifully by a large scola.

Dear Father,

I, for one, am grateful you are still here. I have benefitted from a good number of your posts. Especially strong and paradigmatic have been the points you have made about what Pius V. was really up to in 'Quo primum', as well as what the actual text of 'Pastor aeternus' says about the Pope's job. May the Lord reward you!

I am sending you this link because the good Abbé's conclusion about the Second VC remind me of your writings about Newman's idea of a suspense of the Magisterium. If I read him correctly, he seems to agree, but just puts back the date by about sixty years!
