Happy 1st year anniversary to the priesthood, Canons Altiere, Coggeshall, Estrada, and Todd!

It was exactly a year ago, on August 5, 2014, when His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, had ordained Canons Francis Altiere, Benjamin Coggeshall, Joel Estrada, and Andrew Todd to the Sacred Priesthood for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at the St. Francis de Sales Oratory, St. Louis, MO. Kindly remember them in your prayers today!

Photos: Support Archbishop Cordileone High Mass, Family Picnic Day

As announced earlier, Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Traditional Latin Mass) was celebrated at the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi by the Rev. Canon Olivier Meney of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (ICKSP) to start the Archbishop Cordileone Support Day last May 16, 2015. Click on the photo for the complete photo gallery of the High Mass.

After mass, priests, religious, lay faithful and their families assembled at the Sue Bierman Park in San Francisco for a picnic-style gathering to give their public moral support for Archbishop Cordileone. Groups from different parishes in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, as well as dioceses near and far, were seen all over as some of them carried banners and posters identifying their parish.

Spiritual Bouquet for Archbishop Cordileone


Spiritual Bouquet for the Archbishop

You are of course aware that Archbishop Cordileone has been beat up in the press quite a bit lately, for his support of Father Illo at Star of the Sea who is phasing out altar girls, and for the language change to the teacher contract at Catholic schools. A petition is circulating to support the Archbishop and everyone should sign it.

Meanwhile, it would be great to deliver the Archbishop a different sign of support—a spiritual bouquet. In short this consists of prayers offered to the Archbishop on his behalf. These are usually rosaries, but could be Masses offered, hours from Divine Office, etc. I will collect the names, types, and numbers of prayers, and present them to the Archbishop. Because my wife works for him it will not be a problem to get the names into his hands.

What to Do

To join the spiritual bouquet, please send an email no later than February 16th to spiritualbouquet@yahoo.com with the following information:

1. Name(s) of participants
2. The types of prayers to be offered (per person)
3. The number of prayers to be offered (per person)

I will send one follow up email to the list to confirm he has received the list, after which I will not use your email address for anything else related to this.

A single rosary takes about 20 minutes, so if you offer three rosaries you are spending an hour praying for our Archbishop!

This is going out to a group of people I know, but please feel free to forward on to anyone who might be interested. As the season of Septuagesima moves on into Lent, now is a great time to ramp up the prayers and there is no better cause!

Support Archbishop Cordileone in keeping our schools Catholic!


Support our Archbishop of San Francisco as he moves to protect our children from being taught “error” by either ignorant, the uncatechized or those with an agenda against teaching the Truth in our high schools.

Why is this important?
Parents send their children to Catholic high schools so that they receive clear and correct instruction about God, moral issues and Church doctrine. Teachers who seek employment at a Catholic high school should be well catechized, faithful and willing to teach without error to Church doctrine, the Church’s moral teachings and what it means to serve God. For too long, teachers have been allowed to teach that neither believe or teach on these premises and our children have suffered for it. The salvation of our children’s souls depends on good and holy teaching of the Catholic faith, morals and ethics by their parents and in our Catholic schools.
