When in Rome…

Should one be pleased that this is not just a Protestant rot? Or horrified that this kind of stuff is creeping even into the RCC? The latter, I suggest.

The one comforting thing is that the congregation looks decidedly middle-aged-plus. The young, at least in some parts, are looking elsewhere.

Who of where?

I have been looking for an excuse to post something, just in case anybody ever actually looks here. Well, Matthew Mason has just given me one.

Alas, I came out as follows:

You have a great love of history and liturgy. You’re attached to the traditions of the ancients, yet you recognize that the old world — great as it was — is passing away. You are loyal to the customs of your family, though you do not hesitate to call family members to account for their sins.

Find out which Church Father you are at The Way of the Fathers!

Intriguing. I have heard the name. Must go now and find out more about myself. Let the journey of discovery begin!
