Orders from The Admiralty: Patheos Bound!

To the crew and followers of the good ship YIMCatholic,

As you know, the packet Diligence just delivered a fresh batch of letters to us. Included among them, along with a pair of warm stockings I received from my wife, was this order from the Lords of the Admiralty. Take a look:

Upon receipt of these orders you are hereby requested and required to proceed directly, with utmost dispatch, to the port of Patheos. Upon arriving to your new home port, present these orders to the Port Admiral thereupon as courtesy directs. By every means necessary, the Port Admiral is to revictual, rearm, and fully support cruises you engage in at your discretion, until further notice.

This is cracking good news, as a great many fine folks also sail from Patheos as their home port in His Majesty’s service. The Port Admiral is none other than the Anchoress, Elizabeth Scalia, and fine captains Deacon Greg Kandra and Francis Beckwith and Max Lindenman sally forth regularly from that anchorage. Of late, other renowned members of His Majesty’s navy have been directed to join the squadron there, including Mark Shea, the Crescat and BadCatholic.

To King and Country!

I’m not sure why the Admiralty decided to invite us as well, except perhaps they see that this small frigate may be of value to Our King’s service there. Or perhaps it’s to prepare for close action in the very near future with adversaries of the Crown. Or maybe to help along Leah Libresco.

Regardless, it’s time to come about on a new course so as to reach Patheos by early next week (we’re shooting for going live on Tuesday). All hands, stand by to wear ship! Then, we’ll gather on the main deck for a motivating little movie, Far Side of the World starring Russell Crowe.

Here’s a taste,
