Blog Stats and Origin of Visitors; Happy 2010!

This blog started on June 6, 2009 (barely 6 months old) and looking back, it's hard to imagine how far it has gone (almost 100 posts) and how fast time went by so quickly. I recently had a chance to check on the blog stats and I didn't realize that the page hits already reached 10,242! Also, just for fun, I checked on the countries that has visited this blog for the past 6 months:
Have you seen your country? :)
The top 20 countries (listed above) were recorded by flagcounter.com.

Just two more hours (here in California) and 2010 will finally be here. I'd like to thank you all for your continued visits and will remember you in my prayers today, as I spend my last hour of 2009 and first hour of 2010 in our nearby adoration chapel. May God bless you and shower you all an abundant of graces for this coming year!

New blogger priest! Fr. Mitchell Joe Zerrudo

I was pleased to find out that a priest friend of mine in the Philippines, Fr. Mitchell Joe Zerrudo, started his own blog! Check out The Sense of the Sacred. Kindly link to your respective blogs so it can be ranked and searched via Google.

Fr. Zerrudo is based at the Parish of the Lord of Divine Mercy, in the Diocese of Cubao (Philippines). He offers daily mass in the extraordinary form. The traditionalist community in this parish is the currently the largest Trad congregation in the Philippines under diocesan auspices, with a regular Sunday Mass having about 150 congregants. It is also the oldest, tracing its roots to as far back as 1986.

A very Merry and Blessed Christmas to all!
