Some Hymns for Ascensiontide

Always worth singing, and how appropriately in Ascensiontide:
What a pity that Wesley, in a sense the Newman (and Faber!) of his age, was kept from finding his true home in the Catholic Church; his hymns are certainly very Catholic in their doctrine, all unknowingly.

Oh yes and i met said Archpriest lawrence yesterday at Divine Liturgy-Byzantine Rite.
You were right-a nice bloke

Joshua said...

Excellent, Matthias - say hi to him if you go along to the Liturgy there again.

Let's pray for each other (Oremus pro invicem).
