“Given that Rorate Coeli and Shea are mad at Fr. Z, I think it proves Fr. Z knows what he is doing and he is right.”

With thanks to God for Fr. Finigan and with sympathetic encouragement for his work toward assuring properly beautiful reverence in the true worship of the true God, I hope I may be permitted to suggest a grammatical-culinary correction: the correct diction were either 1) a tasty lasagna or 2) some tasty lasagne.
….perhaps the next Archbishop of Westminster.
That would be wonderful! But is that really possible? Perhaps there is historical precedent.
In any case, let us pray whoever gets the nod has the strength of faith and moral conviction, and is loyal to Rome in carrying out all tasks, not just the reform.
Whoever it may be, I hope has the moral courage to speak out in a public way in defense of the faith, as we are seeing increasingly with american bishops. Having
one at the top who can inpsire the faithful through their own moral courage is desperately needed.
Question: Is All Saints Day celebrated on Sunday and All Souls Day on Monday in Great Britain this year?
TNcath – Yes!
However spelt, the lunch was delicious and the day great.
However spelt the lunch was delicious and the day the great.
Next Archbishop of Westminster? Yes please, all according to the Will of God.
All Saints was on Sunday in the Novus Ordo in England & Wales, but on Saturday in the Extraordinary Form. All Souls is on Monday for both forms of Mass (again, in E & W… not sure about elsewhere!)
I hope it is clear that mine of yesterday was made and offered in the best of humor: my sincere gratitude for the work Fr. Finigan is leading was the roast; the linguistic ribbing was only a garnish.
Seriously though that is the ugliest sanctuary. The tiles look as if they came from a bathroom.
If that’s the ugliest you’ve ever seen, than I envy you.
Dear Chris Altieri,
I wasn’t wishing to sound grumpy ( it just comes naturally sometimes ;-) sorry,) I was just trying to avoid becoming embroiled in a pasta controversy. Then I clicked send twice, thus compounding the error.
..You say lasagne, I say lasgna…that sort of thing.
Delicious either way.
I just realized the deep symbolism. The layers of cheese and meat represent the milk of initial catechesis and the stronger meat of the Church’s further doctrine and mystagogy. The tomato sauce represents Christ’s blood. The pan represents the world. Together, like the meat pie exemplum in Of the Sacrosanct Sacrament of the Eucharist, they represent Christ’s veiled Real Presence in the Eucharist.
Or maybe a pan of lasagna is just lasagna. :)
