I’ve a small tendency to talk about what an Extraordinary Privilege it is attend a daily Tridentine Mass, so much so that someone commented recently, ‘you’d think you were talking about cocaine, not a Mass. Steady on old girl!’
PS - When I was growing up in Ireland, religious education sometimes involved teaching more about the paganism that was the precursor to St. Patrick, rather than the religion he brought. And here was the video when as a teenager, I first learned a cogent account of St. John the Baptist. It probably remains the most Catholic education some souls of generation ‘Modern Ireland’ have had. Visuals, including the proliferation of stubble on St. John the Baptist’s cheeks will offend traddie Catholic sensibilities…avert thine eyes…!
