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.
