parish nearby that has the Traditional Latin Mass.

I spent a good part of the afternoon trying to track down an 85 year old retired priest from out of town who sometimes celebrates the Tridentine Mass here, trying to find out if he might possibly be in town Sunday. Finally got a hold of him; he answered the phone but my heart sank when he said no, he'll be going elsewhere. He paused for just a second, but then said "But another priest is driving from even further away to your parish to celebrate the Latin Mass". Boy, was I overjoyed to hear that! By the way, please pray for that other priest and his safe drive over here and back: he is even older and has been ill recently. Have a Blessed Easter.

Excellent, that's awesome! And, yes, I'll pray for your older priest. I guess we're really spoiled here. We've got a Sunday TLM not more than 7 minutes away door-to-door, and two others (daily too!) about 35-40 minutes away.
