    Thank you , Father. It had to be hard, to pusue both Truth and Holy Orders as you have done. I’m glad to have you as Priest of the Lord! It seems to me that the priests we get by way of the Anglican and Lutheran churches appriciate both Catholicism and their Priesthood on levels deeper than many “cradle catholic” will get prayers tonight.

    At Al Kimmel’s recent ordination they wore violet for Advent. Red was used here for the confirmation service. We used white for celebration of the sacrament. Maybe red is often used at ordinations because they occur on the feast of SS Peter and Paul (who were martyrs)
