A Christian against the state
From LRC’s Laurence Vance

On serving at the Roman Mass
It’s about objectivity, Godwardness and orthodoxy, not the Latin though it’s a beautiful language. This approach pointed the way to me as a child even though the libretto was by Cranmer.
That meant a black cassock, and white surplice. No designer costumes of red, or long white robes with rope-like belts.
Of course there’s nothing wrong with the Eye-talian way but Sarum with albs is good too. :) And I’m sure Mr Hein means a cotta not an English surplice!
