Frs Z, P and C @ MSMS
This correspondent enjoyed the fraternity of two brother priests yesterday in what might be called "MCITL meets WDTPRS, Volume II". Volume I may be found here. Fr Z, or Fr John Zuhlsdorf, is author of the column "What Does The Prayer Really Say?" and this writer pens the weekly missive "A Leaven in the World", both found in The Wanderer Catholic Newspaper.
Father Z. is traveling with Fr P. and the two met up with Fr C. at Mount Saint Mary's Seminary for dinner in nearby Gettysburg. Following the repast the Fathers visited and chatted with seminarians at the Mount. Thank you, Fathers, for sharing the gift and fraternity of your priesthood. Fathers Fred Miller and Fr. Robert V. Zylla as well as the rector, Monsignor Steven P. Rohlfs, took the time for a chat with visitors.
After a tour today at the Gettysburg battlefield, Fathers P and Z will travel on to USNA for a visit with chaplain Father Aidan Logan at that storied institution. For photos and stories on that, visit Fr Z's blog wdtprs.com.
