From the parish bulletin:

The weekly column “From the Pastor” continues on hiatus for the remainder of the month of August while regular activities continue as usual, enlivened by the welcome visits of increasing numbers of tourists. Since there is a gratifyingly large number of readers who follow the weekly columns, forming an extended fellowship of friends of the parish far and wide, each week during the summer hiatus we will use this opportunity to post brief news items and links to other sources and to express our thanks for the interest and support shown for our parish in challenging times.

This week’s suggested reading: Father Rutler recommends an article by Professor Anthony Esolen: “What Can Unite Us Catholics?”—published by The Catholic Thing.

From the parish bulletin:

  It is customary in our parish that the weekly column “From the Pastor” be suspended during the weeks of August, while the regular schedule of activities continues as usual. Summer also occasions the welcome visits of an increasing number of tourists. Since there is a gratifyingly large number of readers who follow these columns, forming an extended fellowship of friends of the parish far and wide, each week there will still be an opportunity to post brief news items and links to other sources. 

   Meanwhile, we take this opportunity to express our thanks for the interest and support shown for our parish in challenging times. Father Rutler’s most recently published essay may be of interest to readers. It is available on the Crisis Magazine website: Fr. Rutler’s Guide to Virtue-Signalling.

Summer also occasions the welcome visits of an increasing number of tourists. Since there is a gratifyingly large number of readers who follow these columns, forming an extended fellowship of friends of the parish far and wide, each week there will still be an opportunity to post brief news items and links to other sources, such as the “Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis to Priests on the 160th Anniversary of the Death of the Cure of Ars, St. John Vianney”—covered by various outlets including the Catholic News Agency (CNA) and the National Catholic Register.
