I've never liked FE but have gone on it a few times to check out what someone said was being discussed there. It's been a long, long time since I checked in on them.
When S2srea posted FE's glowing report on Fr. Patrick Perez I was surprised. I just now read Father's church bulletin and lo & behold! In the section of Events and right under Upcoming Events were Links and there was FE!!!!!! What traditional church would have a link to an internet site like that???! Traddyland is getting curiouser & curiouser. He also has little stories sometimes in the bulletin about a longboarder who gives surfing lessons. He even went to the beach to bless the kid's board before a contest. He didn't explain why the kid couldn't bring his beloved board to church to have Fr. bless it. Other odd things go on there.
So when S2srea posted that Fr. had managed to become a Monsignor, I wasn't surprised. Father is a young, brash, worldly man who missed his calling as a stand-up comic. I told friends & family several years ago that he'd finagle his way to become a bishop. His nickname is 'the pope' since he's got his own little universe. Mark my word - in another 10 years, or maybe less, he'll be a bishop.
