I'm a bit tired of blogging at present... for now, here's to-day's Sunday Collect from the Breviary:
Deus, qui fidelium mentes unius efficis voluntatis: da populis tuis id amare quod præcipis, id desiderare quod promittis; ut inter mundanas varietates ibi nostra fixa sint corda, ubi vera sunt gaudia. Per...(O God, who makest the minds of the faithful to be of one will, grant to Thy people to love that which Thou commandest, to desire that which Thou dost promise; that amid mundane changing things, our hearts may there be fixed, where true joys are. Through...)
Oh, and thanks to Australia Incognita, I remembered to phone Fr Terence and wish him a happy 21st anniversary of ordination: he's just offered Low Mass, and was chatting with parishioners afterward; God bless him evermore.
