First of all:

Archbp. Sambi, Papal Nuncio to the USA – R.I.P.


Thanks again for the prayers and notes, everyone.  They have been a help in a heavy time.  I have several pressing cares and my optimism is tidal.

Next week I will be at a annual and rather informal gathering of priests and, verily, at least one bishop, if anyone would like to pitch in to help with expenses, I would be grateful, as always.   Some timely donations may contribute to the “spirited” enjoyment of the whole group.  Also, the kind souls who sent the tomatoes and also the strozzapreti some time back may be pleased to know that I will use them for one of the meals I’ll be preparing.  The strozzapreti seemed … appropriate, and I happily have saves back enough for everyone.

Thanks to the reader who sent the copy of The Mass of the Future by Gerald Ellard, SJ (1948).  It is a fascinating look at what an avant guarde writer was thinking in the midst of the liturgical movement last century. A surprise in the book were photos of a parish in my native place where I was assigned.  I haven’t dug into yet, but I suspect the writer – beware of Jesuit liturgists – will have some ideas that have been demonstrated over the decades to be naively optimistic.
