Well, we had a big day in Tarquinia, Italy on Wednesday with the ordinations of five Franciscans of the Immaculate to the Priesthood by Bishop Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, celebrated in the Extraordinary Form (Traditional Latin Mass). Congratulations to the ordinandi:

    Priests and more priests…. Deo Gratias. Now we must pray that they will grow in truth and holiness. We can all have the virtue of hope that God will do as He promises.

    Send us more priests Lord!
