    Thanks, Father!

    As I recall, the first entry I read on this blog was titled ‘Don’t mess with the babies.’ Apparently a priest had, at Holy Innocents (in New York?), said something unsuitable during Mass, and then stumbled or fell when coming down from the altar, which was interpreted as swift justice from the Holy Innocents. A charming introduction to the charming people here, including our revered host.

    I am working on a grab bag of gifts for a dear friend’s children, including a
    Gothic child’s chasuble with a lace-trimmed alb. She has one who loves to
    “say Mass” and his elder brother’s is worn out.
