Have you written much in there recently? I can't remember what the last blog post I read of yours was! I thought I managed to follow it via email but maybe not... :ninja:

St Jude is VERY awesome! My sisters were so cute recently, in a St Jude-related capacity: my younger sister went to America to visit my older sister (who lives in Boston). Before my older sister took my younger sister back to the airport to catch the flight to London, they popped into their local corner shop or something (it was run by Mexicans, whatever the place was) and they had some Catholic items, including a lovely green candle for St Jude. So my older sister bought it for me and sent it to me via younger sister :awesome:
Yay for candles!

Also, I think the multi-quote button works - try that :yep:

Umm... I think the last post I made was the one where I said I had a new job

The multiquote button is the one I usually use but today it only works half the time. Think my laptop has a bug :sad:

Oooh I think I did read that post :yep:

Probably TSR that's broke, tbh.

I've started using the app even more now 'cause quote actually works with that!

Oooh btw, extra prayer request: doing a conference paper on Monday. Prayers that I don't drop everything/fall over/get too nervous would be good

I am on holiday in France. It is sad that the local church and several other ones in the area do not have a mass on Sunday. Let us wish for more vocations.

People often have the image of Catholicism as declining. But I came across quite an interesting fact today. I was looking at statistics on Indonesia, and in 1903 there were only approximately 27,000 Catholics (making up about 0.06% of the total population), whereas in 2010, there was an estimated 7.5million Catholics (making up over 3% of the total population). Whilst still only a small minority, it is interesting to see such a large growth occurring in areas which one would not traditionally associate with Catholicism :beard:
If you count people living in a country who do not have a passport, I think Saudi Arabia is about 25% Catholic (Filipino workers)...

But anyways, the St Jude thing....

Wasn't he hopeless?

Yes, we should def pray for more vocations to holy orders :yep:

I dunno much about St Jude's life but he's the patron saint of desperate causes/cases. So quite an apt one for me

You could post your blog here and it would get more traffic

What a sweet story I'd love to visit the Americas. How long is it since you went to the Holy Land?

Prayers for you Lonely Goatherd xxx

My son Alexander had his First Holy Communion yesterday. It was a lovely day

Here he is (on the right, with the white waistcoat and tie). The others are my other children.

They look so cute!

Mass surrounded by people in ball gowns and tuxes is pretty spectacular. And you know what? I had forgotten how much fun Catholics are to party with :awesome:

I was in Austria last week, and visited several churches whilst there. Very beautiful one in St Johann in Tyrol dedicated to our Lady.

For the first time ever at Sunday mass, the priest was considering refusing communion to someone, a man wearing a shirt with no sleeves. It was probably his inability to speak German (English tourist) that led to the priest agreeing to him receiving the sacrament.
