Wednesday in Sydney

It was so nice not to drive at all yester-day; instead, I took the bus into the city and wandered about.  I paid a visit to St Benedict's, Broadway, in the late morning before yum cha for lunch; in the afternoon, I caught up with Fr Terence prior to his weekly 4 pm Mass in the Cathedral, which was followed shortly thereafter by Vespers in Gregorian chant (new rite), sung by twelve choristers.  I must say, the polyphonic Magnificat was magnificent, and the chanting was very impressive.  I ran into no fewer than three other priests whom I know that afternoon, and have resolved to come back up to Sydney for a long weekend in the near future; as was said once of wicked Corinth, "I have many friends in that city".
