Random thoughts on a Saturday night

  • Thank you to everyone who read Grifting Vipers. To my amazement it is one of the most read posts in this blog's history. 

  • Mass was interesting today. The lector reminded everyone who is unvaccinated to keep their masks on and the Eucharistic Minister lady was back despite the presence of three priests. The holy water was back and the sensitive couple with the bag of the metal toys for their baby was back. Now all we need is the sweaty guy with the moist hands lunging across the pew at the sign of peace and the girl with the short shorts and we'll be back to normal. 

  • Non Veni Pacem is not only written by a really lovely person but it quite often a hoot to read. 

  • When people find a traditional Mass and it's far from where they live it is not unheard of for them to move closer to the church especially if they want to go to daily Mass.  Whenever Rocky and I have talked about moving one of the top considerations is to see if there's a decent parish in the area. The FSSP has been ordered to leave Dijon, France after 23 years. All the people who may have moved to the area for the sake of those two parishes are now out of luck. This is one of the reasons why I can't get too excited about the FSSP. They serve at the pleasure of the local bishop and when tells them to get out that's it.
