I remember that priory got hit by a hurricane last year, maybe it was because they are not doing the Leonine Prayers?
For 2017, that's "hit by
in a manner of speaking.
The on-coming Hurricane Irma did indeed look quite grim for Floridans, including in Central Florida: It had been forecast to roar up the center of the Florida Peninsula as a major
hurricane (i.e., category
-3 or worse).
do you think that the weather prayer will protect the priory?

Have you no opinion
of your own about such a surprising outcome? Or do your handlers simply refuse to allow you to express it?
So I offer the attached radar-mosaic image of Irma
, from the U.S. National Weather Service. It shows that forecast major
& unusually fizzling
out to a mere tropical storm
soon after nightfall on Sep. 10--a Sunday (ahem!
). Irma permanently lost
the southern half
of its eye-wall
, soon after its intact eye arrived on the S.W. coast of Florida. At which time 4 or 5 counties separated it from the SSPX priory in Sanford, near the north boundary of Seminole Co. [@
]. Very much un
(1960) and Charley
(2004), which arrived along comparable paths, and sure didn't fizzle; they remained powerful hurricanes while churning more-or-less N.E.-ward thro' the Peninsula, creating memorable natural disasters
. And attained the distinction of officially getting their names permanently retired.
It's worth noting that the SSPX priory in Sanford is not the only chapel or church in Florida that has a claim to providing the traditional Catholic
Mass & sacraments.

: From landfall N'ward, Florida counties in the order of the forecast path: (maybe Collier,) Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Polk, Orange, Seminole. Only 1 county chosen for each line-segment of the forecast path, i.e., each county listed was the 1 closest to enclosing an entire line-segment; none are side-by-side west-to-east.
