  1. I've marked it on my liturgical calendar, and shall celebrate it like a feast day. With a cross 🙂

    Hi folks, I'm looking forward to the new site. I was wondering if you might place fewer graphics on the new home page. The blog takes a long time to load on my computer. I think that is because there are a lot of pictures. Thanks! TL

  3. Dr. K says:

    Yes, I experience the same problem.

    The new blog should have less stuff in the right bar, which will help improve loading times. The server we will be using is also very fast.

    This is my favorite website; I'm looking forward to June 10th!

    Thank you for all you do. Maybe I missed it, but it would great if you could announce special masses a week ahead (ie Divine Mercy Sunday @ St. Stan). I read about it too late to go and would've loved to been there.

    Thanks again!

  5. Anon – There will be a High Mass this coming Sunday, June 6th at St. Stanislaus Church. The Mass is for the feast of Corpus Christi. There will be a procession and Benediction too. Hope you can make it. Bring family and friends.

    Two separate suggestions
    1) Create a "DOR 101" section. As someone who is relatively new to the faith, I had to do a lot of digging to find what exactly the problems in DOR were. Maybe a summary of the usual suspects, and local history, or WHY liturgical abuses ARE liturgical abuses. Not everyone comes from a history that lets them know what's right and what's unacceptable.

    2) Discontinue use of light font-colors (specifically the light blue). When they show up in my blog-reader, they appear on a white background, and are near-impossible to read. I have to either highlight the entire post, or leave my reader to view the original post. (Yes, yes, this is a really picky detail, I know.)

    3) I guess a third suggestion, although I'm not sure how you would implement it: a true "discussion board" section might be useful. It would be easier to carry on coherent discussions in a message-board format, rather than the current comment-style. Of course, there'd be a world of decisions to make on who can create new threads etc …

    HEY!! What ever happened to the chat room? I visited it most every night and no one was there. I rang the bell, I barked,I beeped the horn and flushed the toilet and no one answerd.

    I do refer to the abbreviations for uncommon catholics. New to the faith it helps me alot.

    Honestly with out this blog, I think I would be one confused convert.
    I appreciate all you do. Thanks for all your help.

    OH yeah,topics and themes are also very helpful although I suppose I could go through the archives,but that can be a lot of work.

    I'm a big fan of the chat room, also big fan of a moderated forum.

    Also, now that there's going to be 10 bloggers here on one blog. I'm assuming there's going to be roughly 4x more posts a day. Anything more than 2 or 3 lengthy posts a day might be excessive to someone who reads other blogs as well.

    It would be nice to start categorizing or tagging the blog postings such as ("#humor" "#DR-K" "#dor-abuse" "#devotional" "#calendar") etc. so those of us who don't want to be pranked by cruel April fools jokes or lame anti-Apple sarcasm jokes (that I apparently can't discern) can opt out. 🙂

    Hey did anyone see that Fr. Mitch Pacqwa (sp?) is coming to the Utica area at the end of the month 26/27th? Rochchacha informed me today from the Catholic Courier as he's a faithful subscriber. 😉

    Men's breakfast at St Leo's will be on the 26th as well. Converted Protestant pastor will be speaking who gave up pretty much everything to follow Catholicism. Should be a great talk.

    Also, Theology on Tap buffalo is Wed June 16th. Fr. Mark Noonan will be talking about Theology of the Body. Usually ToT is really good in Buffalo.

    Let's get events like these and more up on a Calendar page asap.

  9. Christopher – Father Mark Noonan's talk should be amazing. He and I are friends. He's very orthodox. So am I, if it matters 🙂
