Fathers, Brothers, I've been without my laptop for a couple of weeks (using dinky iPod instead) - and today I opened my laptop for the first time and was greeted by your WONDERFUL news sitting right there at the very top of Facebook! I just about fell out of my chair as I fumbled around on the keyboard so I could open the "read more" and then I was shouting and screeching the news to a rather stunned Erlend haha! I had to repeat myself haha! And Erlend was SO HAPPY!! We want to come for August 22nd - if you have room in your guesthouse please, if you can, let us know straight away so we can arrange with our good workers to watch the farm. WE HAVE TO COME!! We cannot miss this hahaha!! (God is SO good!) We are very excited now about the future! And please, consider our house as yours as you do your good work here in Orkney - if you ever need a place to stay or a meal or anything - you know where to go! GOD BLESS!!
Now, time to go shift some kye...

Many heartfelt congratulations! I have been following your blog for a few years now, and this is great news. Your blog is an inspiration, as is your prayer and life on Papa Stronsay.

Is a welcome home in order? I say it is.

Dear Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer,

I have prayed for you and followed your courageous path since you first announced your intention to seek regularization. You have been so steadfast in the face of doubters and those who wished it not to come about.

Congratulations on this happy day, the reward for so much patience and humility. The perfect attitude of Our Lady.

Wish I could be there for the profession, but stuck in the middle of the late great States.

God bless you.
