As we head into Christmas…

…blogging gets lighter over the holidays (or stops altogether if the Mayans turn out to be right today). But before I go/Ragnarok occurs/Jesus plays the ultimate prank by returning just to mess with New Age heads I thought I would say thanks to youse guys for being such great readers, great people, and great Catholics. Your kindness and intelligence and love inspire me and I appreciate all you have done in reading this odd potpourri of popery. God bless you and yours this Christmas through Christ our once and future king who came at Bethlehem and will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.

    Dear Mark,
    I have scoured this last post in an attempt to detect some degree of heterodoxy but have been unable to find any. (The only fault I can find in it was that it was not posted in Latin.) Therefore, my conscience is clear that I have done all I can here (for now) with respect to being ever vigilant for doctrinal errors coming from you and others suffering from magnesium deficiency. So, I feel at liberty to wish you and your family a joyful and blessed Christmas!
    un abrazo,
