Happy Easter!

...to all my readers, I wish you a happy and Holy Easter!

The Triduum was...well, let's be charitable and say "interesting"! The singing at the Mass of Lords Supper was good, for what it was, and what it was, was largely out of key! I took this out on my knees afterwards before the Altar of Repose!

Good Friday was, quiet. But even then they managed to have some happy clappy-ness! And then the journey to Bexhill began!

The triduum for me, concluded at the church of St Mary Magdalene, Bexhill. My plan to go to Brighton to Fr. Ray Blake's parish fell through, and I went here instead. Three hours, so I can't really complain!

My main problem came the next morning...I was in the church of St Martha, Bexhill. And it was fine, until the priest lit the Paschal Candle and intoned "Light of Christ" i cringed, but cringed further when the congregation replied "Thanks be to God" - what's wrong with "Lumen Christi"?? Hopefully next year i'll be in Cardiff!

Apart from that, my Easter was quite peaceful, and joyful! We celebrated it with a fine dinner and a wonderful bottle of Rioja!

That'll be me signing out, until tomorrow dear friends!

In Domino

Sorry you missed Mass at St Mary Magdalen's in Brighton. The photos on Fr Ray's blog look quite magnificent. Happy homecoming.

You've been quiet for a long time. Have you given up blogging? I hope everything is going well for you in whatever you are doing now.
