There have been brief moments when justice has been done concerning what has gone on in the last two years. The dismissal of Peter Strzok was one of them.

A draft of his termination letter has been leaked and to say it is devastating is the understatement of the year.

There is more at the link but the sad thing is that this letter not withstanding this gentlemen’s action are rapidly becoming the norm rather than the exception.

Which is why we are now on day 8 of the Novena:

St. Matthew Novena - Day 8
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 


Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Matthew as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate the virtue he showed in holding fast to his Faith even to the point of death.

St. Matthew, we know few details about your life after the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven, but we know that you continued to serve God and His Church through writing and preaching.

Please continue to bring my petitions before the throne of God!

It is believed that you were forced to flee Judea because of the persecution of Christians there. Though details of your death aren’t known for certain, Tradition holds that you gave up your life for the Faith as a martyr.

Pray for me, that I may always be courageous in my practice of the Faith, no matter the cost. Pray that I might have the courage to hold fast to my Faith even to the point of death if necessary.

Please also pray for the FBI agents involved in the Mark Houck arrest.

St. Matthew, pray for us!

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Do I detect a tiny hint of Brady?

I have spent most of the last week in bed the first day being taking care of DaWife who got COVID and then getting it myself. It’s really laid me out and basically the most strenuous things I’ve managed since last Wednesday has been putting up the St. Matthew Novena for those FBI agents (day 8 later today)

One of the few advantages of this situation is that when I’m not totally zonked out trying to sleep, which has been very difficult I’d had access to the net and thus got to follow a most interesting development.

As you might know 21 years ago the New England Patriots starting QB got himself hurt in game and a young 6th round pick who had not been on anybody’s radar came in. Took the starting job and never looked back. That young fellow was Tom Brady who now has 7 Superbowl rings and would not shock anyone if he came home with an eighth by season’s end.

Well last week the Patriots starting QB Mac Jones a 1st round pick out of Alabama ended up down with an injury meaning that Backup QB (and defacto coach) Brian Hoyer would be starting for New England with a young 4th round pick Bailey Zappe to back him up.

Not many people expected this game to be close but the real surprise was not Aaron Rogers’s 500th TD pass but that Hoyer would go down with an injury and Zappe would have to take over under fire.

Even fewer people expected that he would lead the team to several scores and that the game would go to overtime tied at 24 till Green Bay with no time left on the overtime clock would kick a game winning field goal.

Now does this mean that lightning is about to strike again for the Pats with a late draft pick that nobody wanted? Unlikely, there is only one Tom Brady. But I’m going to be very interested in seeing what happens next week when he likely gets his first start
