From a seminarian:
Just wanted to say a big “Thanks” for your blog. I was sure glad for the liturgical minutiae I’ve picked up here when I found a fly in the Precious Blood tonight after Mass.

My work here is done.
Yet another reason to wear a pin-on maniple.
Fathers! Just “tie one one”!
I have written about what to do when critters get into the chalice. HERE
