    Is this the “wonderful thing” of your previous post?

    If it isn’t, then the “wonderful thing” is either:

    1. “His Heremeneuticalness” has just been appointed Archbishop of Westminster.


    2. The Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments have issued the “Haugen & Haas Songbook Suppression Decree.” … At an audience granted to the undersigned head of this Dicastery on Dec. 23, 2008, the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI approved this Decree and ordered its publication ….


    3. Penjing is blooming again.

    If it’s not any of those things, then it must be really really wonderful.

    I was wondering about that post as well. I love a good mystery…unless it is never solved! ;-)

    Papa Ratzinger ha deciso di celebrare la Messa di mezzanotte secondo il rito straordinario? Cioè la cosa meravigliosa? Se solo potesse essere vero! Ma dubito quindi sono! :-(

    Hmmm. I was hoping for some warmth to thaw the new glacier forming in Siber-er-Wisconsin, but this is good too.

    I thought it might be because Pope Benedict used ‘ineffable’ in his Angelus address (which he did)!

  6. Being a humble man I asked no questions but simply stood in awe.
