Nothing like the start of Lent to wrench a priest away from his desk.

Now that I’m here though, I’m long overdue on this update. I neglected, in a previous post, to show real time results of the poll I canvassed on the design of a St Michael the Archangel prayer card.

I’m surprised by the distribution of votes. Not many fans of Raphael out there!

Now, for some bad news. This online poll thing has become a completely moot point. Last week I received a parcel from Australia Needs Fatima which contained a St Michael the Archangel prayer card and medal!


After some negotiating, I’ve managed to obtain medals for my parishioners. This is an excellent way to promote devotion to St Michael. I’m sure it’s no coincidence. What a great favour from Heaven.
