Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

Today Rocky and I went to the Ukranian Holy Family Shrine in DC for Mass with his bible study group from church. They are Catholic but use the Byzantine rite. It was amazing. Except for the homily every part of the Mass was sung either by the priests, deacons or the congregation. Communion was administered using a silver spoon. We Latin rite Catholics have lost so much beauty and dignity in our liturgy. It's really quite tragic how ugly the average Novus Ordo Mass is.

Afterwards we all went to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for lunch and a tour. That was very nice. The tour guide got a couple of dates wrong but she had a huge amount of information to remember so that's understandable. After the tour Rocky and I visited the Poor Clare's convent and the Franciscan monastery. And then we came home so Rocky could cheer Georgetown on to victory.

Is that where wusti blogger used to be?

Nowadays "wake up and smell the incense" is a blog reserved to invited readers only, which is a waste, he was good.

However, he was Byzantine Catholic, so if you know his wherabouts, you might get me an invitation to read?
