Asking for prayers for this blog...

We continue on as pilgrims: usually on foot and sometimes lacking the best of shoes.

I've never asked for prayers for this blog, but please do pray for the success of this effort - it is a ministry. Pray for this piece in a puzzle looking to inspire Catholic youth to take an interest and to study the sacred sciences in the Holy City.

In our new epoch of the indolent Internet viewer Catholic Internet evangelization is of growing importance with the dawn of each new day. How do we reach the millions? Evangelicals beat us with radio and TV. Let's do our best to hit the Internet world.

Blog ministry is a labor and a prayer. Zeal can fan duty into an ardor that feels no obligation, but drives with the strongest thirst for the conversion of souls. We say laborare est orare and also orare est laborare. All of it is a labor!

Thanks to all for prolonged intercession.

"Pray for me too, that I may be given words to speak my mind boldly, in making known the Gospel Revelation, for which I am an ambassador in chains."

-Ephesians 6:19-20

And this blog is dedicated to the Madonna under the title Salus Populi Romani.
