Back to Benediction

Some practice of the Christus factus est for Holy Thursday, then straight into Compline followed by Benediction: it was good to get to St Francis, Riverside, for this (having missed going in February and earlier in March for various reasons).  On Holy Thursday – just over a fortnight away – we will sing Compline at the altar of repose at 9 pm.  

I had had a long and stressful day, and thanks be I felt better after worship, having felt quite wretched earlier.  It was good, too, to help bring some blessings by our music, helping Father celebrate Benediction: one of the older men who came along remarked to me that it was the first time he'd been to Benediction since high school.  C'est la vie in benighted Tasmania.

Well nice to hear there are still some pockets of tradition left in Tassie. What will become of the Church there? One can only pray.
