Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

A Nod of the Miter Goes To . . .

May 25th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

. . . you, the readers. Yesterday evening, we surpassed 100,000 hits. That means that we have had thousands of people, in the Diocese of Rochester and outside of it, reading of our plight and our efforts. You, dearest friends, have turned this blog into a success. We have conducted ourselves for almost a full year in the ways of light-hearted sanctity and jocularity, bringing comfort, affirmation, and an occasional smile to your besieged hearts.

We have “admonished the sinner” and “instructed the ignorant,” two of the spiritual works of mercy so integral to the life of the Church. While we have our detractors, even in our own midst, their words fall on deaf ears, and are heard by individuals whose apathy and sluggishness prove their unwillingness to risk great things for the sake of the greatest, that is, the Holy Eucharist, brought to us each and every day in the Mass. Without a proper respect and zeal for the King of Kings, we can have no genuine recourse, in this life or the next.

And so, as we near our First Anniversary, and all the festivities there-upon, I want to thank you all for your continued support and readership. People always tell me, not knowing my blogging identity, “you know, all those blogs, they’re run by cranky old white men who can’t deal with reality.” You, friends, are proof that this is not so. Just look at our followers on Facebook – almost half of them are in high school or college. The others are young parents of large families, converts, devoted single people, and those who have stayed true to the authentic teachings of the Church through the tumult of the 60’s and 70’s. We are the real face of diversity. The sooner these aging liberals realize that, the sooner God’s will may be realized.

Your humble host and friend in orthodoxy,

    I'm going to try again….forgot the word verification…sigh…

    I've just discovered this blog, and I've sent you a couple of emails, which you so graciously replied to.

    Keep up the good fight! There are a lot of us 'ordinary Catholics' both inside and outside the Diocese of Rochester who have your back!
