I am very sorry about the lack of blogging from this end lately. Not only have I been very busy (and the business doesn’t seem like letting up) in both my work for the Archdiocese and for Anima, but also I have unwell for most of the last week – some version of the flu that the flu injections didn’t cover.
Being confined to bed has one benefit, I have been able to keep up with reading everyone elses blogs for a change. Of course, this week coming up is a big one, and you might like to follow some of the pilgrims on their way. I highly recommend either Fr Nick at “A priest downunder”.
Can anyone recommend any other blogs belonging to pilgrims on their way to WYD, so we can live the experience throught them?
Only two other things before I go:
1) I was very very sorry to miss the (first of what will be a regular weekly) Extraordinary Form mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral on Wednesday night at 5:30pm. Kudos to all involved, and I look forward to participating in future masses.
2) On Lito’s blog the other day (BTW, I understand Lito is not well, so prayers for him please), I discovered this delightful “partita” by Johann Pachelbel on the Lutheran Chorale “Was Gott tut das ist wohlgetan”. Apparently there is a whole stack of these variations on Chorales. If all you know of Pachelbel is his Canon, then here is something different for you. Shows why the organi is the King of Instruments, and why the German chorales should be better known by Catholics.
