We’re doing our best to counter the American tradition of “trick or treating” here in Oz. A bit of whinging from the girls (“Why not?”) but thankfully no-one knocked on our door this year.
Instead we had a little “All Saints Eve” devotion, singing “For all the Saints” and using the introduction to Amy Welborn’s excellent book “The Loyola Kids Book of Saints”, a gift from Mia’s Godfather, the excellent Fraser Pearce (who, by the way, has an excellent comment up yesterday in time for “Reformation Day”, on the role of scripture in the Lutheran and Catholic Churches in relation to dogma).
We’re having a sung mass in the Cathedral today, yours truly doing the cantoring. Ditto again tomorrow for All Souls. If you are in Melbourne at 1pm, come along.
