Preface: Whilst writing this first Blog, I thought of doing so in the form of a Pauline epistle. I thought that since all blogs tend to be this inform writing, why don't I do something different: like make my posts a letter from me to the Reader! Sadly, it is not a hand-written letter, but that would be rather laborious! I pray that an electronic version will do just as well. I hope that my being different is somewhat attractive in a world where people are made to conform to the world's standard!
Mark, a poor servant of the Gospel, to the faithful of the Universal Church dispersed throughout the world: the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the charity of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all!
I give thanks to Almighty God that He, far loftier and more infinite than I, has deigned to bestow upon me the grace of preaching the Gospel to you, and not you only but to all the world. Yet, I am but a ignorant sinner, and any good word that comes from me is only His word, which He is pleased to speak through me.
And I think Him also that He has bestowed upon me His faithful Saints, in the first place His own Blessed Mother and St. Mark, a most glorious Apostle and Evangelist in this Church, to aid me in this great task. May He be praised for His mercy to me and through me to you!
I send to you this epistle to inform you that, by His grace, I am re-establishing this Blog, through which I can commentate on various matters in the Church and Her ever present enemy: the world.
Some of you, brethren, may remember that a Blog formerly existed on this Site, but was discontinued due to various reasons. However, after some seeming improvements and some thought, I have decided to re-establish the use of a Blog. The Blog will be, as far as I can tell, a collation of thoughts, updates, commentary and other things. I will use it to post things that don't really have a place on the Pages of the Site, but which I wish to share with you.
On the previous blog, I was writing some commentaries under the guide of a fictional Pope called Gregory XVII. I wish to re-continue that commentary. However, I shall have to see how this develops.
In the meantime, I have so much on the Site to do. Surely, evangelisation is never a easy thing to do. O St. Mark, give me the patience to evangelise!
May Almighty God through the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Mark and the venerable Patrons of the Site give you grace and peace, brethren, and grant you to be strong in the Faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which He has given to the Holy Roman Church. Amen
