Each year for a while, the inimitable Fr. Hunwicke has been explaining the details about Saturday before Ash Wednesday as Egge Saturday, the Festum Ovorum at Oxford. The discussion of musk and grapes, etc., is … engaging. Yolks not for yokels.
This is not to be confused with the Curate’s Egg.
Moreover, while reading in Card. Pell’s prison diary [US HERE – UK HERE], I was reinforced in the urgency of praying for my personal enemies but also for enemies of the Church, who are inside the gates.
Luke 6:27-28 “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.”
Dear enemies, I am still praying for you.
BONUS: All yolks aside, QUAERITUR: Why do the French eat only one egg at a time?
