No, not a return. Just taking the opportunity to say thanks to you all for your kind comments and e-mails this week. A leaven to the thesis writer!

As some of you have expressed concern, my plan for now is to keep the blog where it is, in case we get nostalgic.

And, if you're up for it, come on down!:

With gratitude to God, the New Orleans

Thank you for your efforts. The Catholic blogosphere has never interested me, but blogs like yours are very helpful and encouraging. Congratulations on your ordination, and good luck and God's blessings in everything that you do.

Congratulations again, Mark! I would like very much to be present in person for the celebration. Let me see if I can make a weekend in New Orleans happen.

Congrats again!

And would love to, as Nawlinz is one of my wife's favorite places.

But multiple hours in a packed minivan with four child passengers, the eldest being 6 and a half...

Sorry--had a vision of purgatorial suffering there.

Deo gratias, Mark! I´ll look forward to whatever account (pictorial or written) you might do of the day.

Just a question:

Those of us who know you from before in the blogosphere should address you as Father from now on? Or should we use the Fr. just in "official" matters, e.g. mailings?

Many thanks!

I'd say address me in whatever way you're comfortable.

It'd be a little strange if people whom I am accustomed to calling me Mark started insisting on calling me "Father" all the time. But if that's what you/they prefer, I can live with it.

For people who knew me "before," however, Mark will still be fine.

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!

God bless,
