    Immodesty is a crisis in our culture today. I issued a dress code for Vacation Bible School for adults and children!

    Dear Susan,
    It sure is a small world. I have followed your blog for a few months now. Its been one in my routine of morning internet reading. Sadly, I commented on a Mark Shea article yesterday and come to find out, you replied with attacking me. You broke one of your rules. I have been studying Latin for a couple of years as well as my children do in school. Its a beatiful way of prayer, plus if one can learn Latiin it makes it a lot easier to learn other languages.. You insinuated that I said Mark Shea needed an exorcism. I was shocked to find out that it was you and you made such a sly, off handed comment…and then you have this blog. I do not agree with the attacks between Mark Shea and Michael Voris, but I must say I do side with Mr. Voris since he is more traditional as I and my entire family are…we did not appreciate your thinking Latin is used in excorcisms….only…what??? Sadly, we will not be supporting your blog any longer.

    Dear JoAnna,
    Oh dear. I did not mean to offend. I was just giving ONE possible explanation to Mark thinking that you accused him of being influenced by Satan. I was wrong.. And he did qualify what really had him thinking that–and it wasn’t Latin. I love Latin!!
    God Bless you and your family.

      Thank you for your reply Susan. As I didnt mean to offend anyone either, apparently I absolutely did not get my point across. I certainly did not expect to be attacked the way I was by this man Mark Shea, who has a lot of issues that need to be dealt with. He seems to have a lot of hatred inside of him for well….everything. This is not of God. I do love your blog, but cant support anything to do with this man or anyone that supports him.

      Our Lord is not vengeful and arrogant and certainly does not attack.

      As for Latin, I do hope you continue to study it as well. It has opened up such a
      beautiful world for my family and I. I practice mostly when I walk around my neighborhood for exercise.

      May Our Lord keep you and your family,


  8. JoAnna, who are you. This is the first time that I have read this blog, and I am not quite sure what this is all about, but I am very interested in hearing your perspective on Latin, and Latin Mass, and I am pretty traditional for a Catholic, but I do follow the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church, and I do follow Pope Benedict XV1, and believe in the Apostolic Succession, etc. I am a Roman Catholic woman, farm wife, living in rural Indiana with her family. I am also interested in the Deacon’s wife here also. We just had a Deacon ordained from our Parish who sponsored him this weekend in Indianapolis. He is so joyful in the Lord about his new state. I go to St. Joseph.s Parish in Shelbyville, Indiana. I am a new Christian writer. I have a new Christian website about to be published. My personal e-mail address is: Please drop me a line.
    Blessings, Viola Maria

    Can a deacon still be in a relationship with someone else and incorporate God into that relationship?
