Hail, Readers!  

Posted by Agnes Regina

The beauty of the internet is that people who live hundreds of miles apart, as my blog-partner Jude Emblem and I do, can post about the same things on the same site as if we lived next door to each other.

I suppose it's like the Church, a little bit. The Mystical Body is like a spiritual internet, (linking souls rather than bodies, of course!) And as on the internet, people we don't know and may never meet are likely to read our work and, God granting, be bettered by it; in the same way, in the Mystical Body (I quote from the speech of a newly-ordained SSPX priest who was with us on Sunday for his first Solemn High Mass), our prayers and actions, our correspondence with grace, (or lack of it), can help or harm people we don't know exist.

It's an interesting thought, actually. May our posts, then - be they poetry or prose, discussing matters of doctrine or of everyday life - help much and harm little, bring many smiles and many good thoughts to our readers... God bless, and let us keep up the Good Fight.

Viva Cristo Rey.

Have you considered that St Symon the Stylite and Ste Genevieve of Paris had virtual conversations long before internet?

Is anyone on your blog reading French, Agnes Regina? I mentioned the Steel Lily blog on my document Vaison des Voconces, maison des Meffre, so you might want to know I did so.

Actually Jude is pretty fluent, I believe, so if I get lost I'll ask him to translate for me.

And, about St. Simon and St. Genevieve - I didn't know, but touché! And isn't St. Clare of Assisi Patroness of Television?

The Church is a very technological thing.

(Or, if you will, technology is a very Catholic thing.)

Of television, but that patronage occurred before internet, so, I think both saints would have been as appropriate for patrons of the web.
