Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, CA, probably the most traditional bishop in California, has just been named by Pope Benedict XVI as the ARCHBISHOP OF SAN FRANCISCO! Here he is celebrating one of many Tridentine Masses in his diocese.
Fr. Angel Sotelo. Priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno in California. Pastor. "The Lord is the portion of my inheritance" was recited in Latin by a seminarian on the day he was tonsured, and began to ascend the traditional Latin rites of Minor Orders. That's what the "Dominus Pars" means.
Every once in a while, I need to publish this by means of an intro. First, welcome, even if you're not happy to be following LOL.
Secondly, hang around the blog first and see what you think. My views are those of a Catholic priest who stands with the Catholic Church. If you want to see how I respond to a number of questions, just type in a word in the search box at the top of the blog and you'll probably find what your're looking for.
Third, I am very different from other internet priests. I often fight with the more "liberal, dissenting Catholics".
Please do not write and say you are "ashamed" because a priest behaves like that on Tumblr (controversial). I don't care what you are ashamed of. For all you know, there may be people who are ashamed of you too. So what? I enjoy blogging and helping others, and if I didn't help you, just click unfollow and go elsewhere.
Yes, I care when you feel hurt or shocked. No, it isn't going to make me back down or apologize for being Catholic.
What you SHOULD say to people dealing with any of these
This too shall pass, even if that sounds corny and cliche. Your anxiety will subside, you are not dying, you will not die from this, everything is going to be fine. Keep taking deep breaths, try and stay focused.
