The law of God is written in the heart of every man
It's interesting how goths and New Agers try to recreate traditional Catholic practices - like this 'breviary' and even forms of monasticism and a 'rosary' - even though their theology is way off. (They like Latin and Book of Common Prayer-sounding English too... and if they knew Slavonic they'd probably like that.) The goths are putting together fragments of a culture they don't understand - the fragments they've shored against their ruins as T.S. Eliot might have put it. I don't see these people singing Marty Haugen songs or inventing a pagan 'Liturgy of the Hours' in ICEL 'English' celebrating 'ordinary time'! They have more sense! Natural religion.
