Good news

Today a couple of good news stories.

The Australian Ordinariate continues to celebrate some key milestones, the latest being the ordination to the diaconate of Revs Stephen Gronow in Brisbane on Friday night by Bishop Oudeman, and  Richard Waddell on Saturday in Melbourne by Bishop Elliott.


Also, Luke Samy, formerly a member of the Canberra Latin Mass community, has made his simple profession with the Dominicans.  An economist by training (he has a doctorate from Oxford), he has joined the (US) Province of St Joseph.  

Please keep all these men in your prayers.

Excellent news indeed! Small correction - Luke is actually from the Melbourne community and spent many years there as a server, his parents also go there, and he was farewelled by the community there in the middle of last year. Your post implies he was a product of the Canberra TLM community.

Tim - We claim him too! To be honest I hadn't realised he was part of the Latin Mass group down there as well, but he did live here for a couple of years and was an altar server in our community.

Indeed you are both right.
Looking at the Eastern US Dominican province it seems that they have good and solid formation and a good crop of aspirants.
God bless Fra Antoninus and all the sons of St Dominic.

Good news indeed! It's great to see people "fighting over" Luke — he's well worth fighting for. I was at university with him. He was a good friend, and I'm certain he will make a fine friar and preacher!
