Not to get all --. - on you, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who read this blog, again, for your interest, your participation, your prayers and well wishes. Thank you even for your private frustrations (you know who you are ;-)).
As the site approaches a quarter of a million visitors in a fairly short time, I am gratified by the cross-section of regular readership. A majority of the visits come from Missouri, particularly the St. Louis area, which is great because I wanted to have blog to cover local Catholic news. Yet there are many other regular readers from Italy, France, England, Germany, Malta, Belarus and the Philippines, and from all over the U.S., which is also great because I didn't want the blog to be just about St. Louis, but about the advance of faithful Catholicism everywhere. And I think the leadership of Archbishop Burke, continued so ably by Bishop Hermann, has made St. Louis Catholic news of interest to Catholics outside the area.
Again, thank you all. You are in my prayers daily.
