Tradie picture of the day: pray for vocations

Just a reminder that there are lots of fervent priestly vocations out there - not of course in the dying dioceses infected by liberalism. Not even, in any number, in the 'conservative' parishes. But the traditional seminaries are packed. And that is why the future will be ours...

Here, Monsignor Ranjith was presiding at an ordination for the Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP) in Wigratzbad last year.

And yes, those vestments are blue (because blue symbolises devotion to Our Lady, and it was a Marian feastday. The Ordination Mass took place in Bavaria, which has an indult for blue vestments on such days).

On the FSSP, you might care to keep their young men preparing for ordination (a group to be ordained deacons on March 13, priests on May 30) in your prayers. You can find their names on the North American website.

Two "Traddie Pics of the day" with Blue in them! Can you find a third? :)

Fear not Son of Trypho, my stash of traddie pictures featuring the colour blue is at least as numerous as, well a certain series of posts on another blog.

But don't expect to get them all at once (do you remember those Monty Python skits on tree recognition featuring The Larch....)!
