I'd like to take a moment to thank those who have used the donation button in the side-bar. You have all been very generous, and it is certainly appreciated. This Saturday, I and my family will offer a Rosary for all those who have donated. (Donations are used to secure hardback books that can be transposed to an electronic format, by typing, for the "Collect of the Day" posts.)
Many of you may not know this, but all the texts taken from Guéranger's The Liturgical Year, St. John Vianney's Sermons, and St. Francis de Sales' Introduction to a Devout Life are all typed out by hand from books. Quite often there are typos. I would also like to thank all those readers who are kind enough to send me notification of these typos. Your contribution to this weblog is a very significant one, and so greatly appreciated.
Lastly, I would like to thank my son, who has recently been very instrumental in helping to type out many of these texts. He's not quite as nimble at the keyboard as his old man, but his help has been significant, nonetheless.
Every year I hope to contribute more content to the "Collect of the Day" posts. However, I've been very pressed for time, lately, as there has been a lot going on here in South Bend, so I apologize for not adding as much content over the last few weeks as I would have liked.
