Re: The wickedness of face cream

From the programme for the Mass sheet for Arundel cathedral for the Carpet of Flowers festival on 30th May:
Pleni sunt cacti et terra gloria tua.

... and a board outsIde the pub where I was staying advertised a Special Corpus Christie menu.

Tenebrae

During Holy Week I attended Tenebrae for the first time. I've always known about Tenebrae, but never had the opportunity before to experience it. We could do that next year, I thought afterwards, and mentioned it to PP and a few others, who were of a similar opinion. So - I need to know: Are the psa...

Re: "Ah-men" or "Ay-men" ("Ay" as in "day" etc)

Definitely 'Ah-men'. The only time I heard 'Ay-men' as a child was in American films. Then I became a Catholic and heard it in England, to my surprise (but not often). However, I haven't heard it for ages. Perhaps it was a generational thing? Pre-war?

I too have only ever experienced (1) - gradual unveiling - in Wellinborough, in all those years, whether old rite or 'new'. Can't comment on elsewhere.

Re: The New Texts: Formation (discussion)

SC mentions that the Gathering Mass has been revised - as this was written for Northampton diocese many moons ago and our congregation seem to know it - who has published it and where is it available?

Re: St Gregory to becomes a Feast

Indeed - yes, I rejoice that our patron has been thus elevated. However, I take the point about the Celtic heritage. It's as though it never happened. How about 're-evangelise'? After all, they had it, but lost it after the departure of the Romans and the arrival of the Angles, Saxons and Jutes.

Re: Father's Day

Mothering Sunday (NB not Mother's Day - that is American and secular, ditto the Fete des Mamans in France) is a different case. Mothering Sunday is always the fourth Sunday of Lent and was the traditional day in England when children in service were allowed to go home to their Mother church (and the...
