Sunday quotation

From someone I know:
Our worship is traditional, not from nostalgia or fear of change, but from what one scholar has called “modern people making a consciously post-modern choice.”
Sounds good. When, socially speaking, you don’t have a living community in direct continuity with the tradition (family, ethnicity) for natural, unself-conscious traditionalism (the pre-modern way), this seems the next best thing.

In my corner of the church, the catafalque with its black covering and six yellow candles are still out, probably for the month as a reminder to pray for the souls in purgatory.

Mass: Dicit Dominus as we make our way through extra Sundays after Pentecost. We had Sung Mass with O sacrum convivium at the offertory. Happy Martinmas (not commemorated today per ’62).
