Holy Trinity on Father Z's Blog

Many Catholics know Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, or "Father Z," widely respected Catholic blogger, columnist, speaker, and formerly of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.   His website,, receives numerous visitors each day, who read and discuss his "commentary on Catholic issues & slavishly accurate liturgical translation."  Each week Father Z posits his readers, "Was there a good point offered during the sermon that you heard for your Sunday Mass?  Let us know."  Visitors to his blog comment in reply.

This week, Holy Trinity made the list: 

Nathan says:
We were out of town this weekend, and went to High Mass (TLM) at Holy Trinity Church in Philadelphia. Father Check focused on the “Ecce Homo” in Our Lord’s Passion, linking it to His temptation in the desert by saying that Our Lord showed us that we can follow God’s will in the very difficult things by practicing mortification in little ways.

What a beautiful church (the oldest German parish in the USA, BTW) and a very beautifully done Missa Canata. Everybody in Philly ought to be going there.

BTW, Father Z, we were in Philadelphia to see the National Curling Championships. You will be happy to know that Minnesotans were well represented, winning both the men’s and women’s national titles.

In Christ,

Thank you, Nathan!  Very glad you were able to join us down here in Philadelphia.  Thanks for the post!

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, a Minnesota native, avid fan of curling, and convert to Roman Catholicism, was ordained in Rome in 1991 by Pope John Paul II for the suburbicarian Diocese of Villetri-Segni, Italy, and received his licentiate in Patristic Theology from the 'Augustinianum,' where he is currently pursuing his doctorate.
