    Arrgh! Shoes with buckles! Surely, the cause of all problems in the pre-Consiliar Church. Why else should they have been abolished?

  2. Venerator Sti Lot says:

    This reminded me of Jean Baptiste Marie Foucquet, late parish priest of the Church of Saint Joseph, the patron saint of Boulogne, imprisoned by the Terrorists of France, “solemnly striving with slow and measured movement of hand and arm, and a large supply of breath, to get up a polish on the worn-out surface of an ancient pair of buckled shoes”, with difficulty since “except for a little water and soap the prison authorities will not provide us poor captives with any means of cleanliness and tidiness, and le bon Dieu does love a tidy body as well as a clean soul” – in chapter 18-19 of Baroness Orczy’s The Elusive Pimpernel (1908).
