Yesterday, Sacred Heart Friday, one of the new ordained priests in Zaitzkofen last June 30, Fr. Victor Pasichnik, a Russian, came to celebrate Holy Mass in our Chapel. I included every Crusader´s intention therein as I usually do during the Canon.
In his first Mass in Zaitzkofen last Sunday, the Feast of the Most Precious Blood, his very 'colourful' life was highlighted, very moving. He underwent diverse challenges (nearly persecutions) under the communists. Yesterday, he mentioned at a talk after the Mass how grateful he is, for the fact that not all young men in Russia are 'lucky' enough to have the privilege he has. Among other things, he also apologised for the delayed spending of the Blessing after the Mass in Zaitzkofen due to many family members who wished to congratulate and the many picture takings that followed, which, though not worth mentioning, kept us waiting in the sun, and that, especially, we all in humble patience offered. It´s always very rewarding to attend the ordinations, we get to talk to fellow traditionalists of other places, and meet again some acquiantances and other priests we´ve known.
Fr. Pasichnik is assigned in Innsbruck, Austria. Let´s pray that he may serve the Lord as He has planned.
Deo gratias for all our new ordained priests, also for the many blessings I received on behalf of us all Crusaders, and our families.
