Happy 2nd Anniversary!

'Happy Anniversary to us . . . '

Yesterday was two years to the day that I began this parish blog. I hope you find it helpful. I have tried to post on a variety of topics; the liturgical year, parish activities, the wider Church and also sometimes to highlight important aspects of Church teaching.

If you look at the 'archive' in the sidebar on the right-hand side of the page, you will see links to all earlier posts. I find it interesting to look back sometimes and see how busy we've been!

Also, there are usually 'labels' at the foot of each post. If you click on one of these 'labels' it will 'magically' (I don't pretend to understand how this technology works!) take you to all the other posts with the same label which can be useful if you're looking for an answer to something you read earlier on the blog.

Thank you to everyone who reads the blog and a special thanks to those who add comments from time to time. The comments are what makes a blog different to a newsletter or a parish web site.

I sometimes wonder if it is worthwhile. I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

Father in this information age it is not only wortwhile but essential. Thank you for the time you spend. If only one person was to be encouraged to change and become truly converted it could be the person who changes the history of the World. I am sure the devils hates the priest bloggers that teach and defend the truth- keep going and don't look back!

Father, I think it is very worthwhile. As a family we have learnt a great deal over the past 2 years from your blog, and the various comments that people add. It's also good to make use of the links, that then draw you to explore some matters further. We've looked at the Vatican website and the diocese one as a result of your blog, which we may not have done otherwise, and knowing about them we now refer to them. So 'thank you' and Congratulations on the 2 year anniversary.

Of course it's worthwhile! I echo the two earlier comments. If just one person is affected by something they have read on your blog, then it's definitely worthwhile and, like Tracey, I have learnt a lot from things you have posted and from following your 'links'.
Incidentally, I looked at the 'archive'. Had you noticed that you posted almost exactly the same number of posts in the past two years? It will be interesting to see how many you manage in 2010!

Congratulations, two year old!
Your blog is definitely worthwhile, informative and uplifting.
I am sure the videos you post are very helpful to many. Your post today taught me something new about labels!Thank you, Father, please don't think about stopping.
