The blog got hit over 550 times yesterday, 200 over the previous record. Evidently, Fr. Groeschel made a comment last night on his live show on EWTN chiding the bloggers for jumping on Fr. Francis Mary’s back. A observant commenter over at AmericanPapist drew the connection between AmP’s spike in hits and the Groeschel comment. The rising tide has risen all ships, as they say, and FIB has benefited directly from the EWTN “scandal”.

So, welcome surfers. Please feel free to have a look around the joint!

And don’t forget to pray for Fr. Francis Mary!
