Book Review: Rich Like Them by Ryan D'Agostino

Over the past week, I have eagerly devoured Ryan D'Agostino's latest work, "Rich Like Them. My Door-to-Door Search for the Secrets of Wealth in America's Richest Neighborhoods" [ISBN: 978-0-316-02146-3].

As the individual who commonly finds himself buried in the midst of financial books by unfamiliar jargon and verbosity, I was more than pleasantly surprised by this book since opening to the initial page. D'Agostino's easy-to-read style along with the first-hand wisdom of America's financially elite make this a must-read for anyone that desires to realistically find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow before retirement. Fantastic Read.

Today, since today was an interim day for a silent retreat at which I was obligated to attend, I began to browse through the blogs on my sidebar. Then, I noticed the glorious news: the bishops of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X have been declared as not being excommunicated. I have long supported the idea, canonically legitimate, that the Priestly Society of St. Pius X was never excommunicated because the initial decree was unjustifiable per Canon Law.

Yet, regardless, today it is official: The Bishops Bernard Fellay, Alfonso de Gallareta [sic - Galarreta], [Bernard] Tissier de Mallerais, and Richard Williamson are not excommunicated!!

Update (February 7, 2009): It is unfortunate that political reasons have caused the following stories:

Requiem for His Royal Highness, King Louis XVI

Via The New Liturgical Movement.

Scenes from the Requiem Mass at St.Eugene-St.Cecile (Paris, France) on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of the former King. Mass from January 2009.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Te decet hymnus Deus, in Sion, et tibi reddetur votum in Ierusalem. Exaudi orationem meam; ad te omnis caro veniet. Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Anglican Use Requiem Mass

This requiem Mass was offered according to the Book of Divine Worship, the approved usage of the Latin Rite for certain congregations in the United States who have been received into the Catholic Church from the Anglican tradition.

I thought that this video was stunningly beautiful. I particularly love the black vestments, clearly illustrating our morality.
