As you probably know from The Anglo-Catholic blog, Father Phillips is in Rome with a group of students from Our Lady of the Atonement Academy. He posted a video of Cardinal Law welcoming and thanking the students for singing the Arcadelt "Ave Maria." In Father Phillips' words, "The Cardinal had turned 80 years old last Friday, and he referred to our students' singing as one of his 'best birthday gifts.'"
What touched me most was referring to the beginning, when Our Lady of the Atonement was just an idea! O, how good God is! May we all look back on this period of our lives when our own parishes, groups, and even the Ordinariate in this country itself was just an idea, and see how good God is to us also!
