Return to Christchurch

I was last here on Whit-Wednesday, 2009: 'tis good to be back in this very attractive city, albeit somewhat the worse for wear after the earthquake it suffered last year.

In the Traditional Calendar (well, since the feast was settled on the Sunday within the Epiphany Octave in 1921 by Pope Benedict XV, as by a happy coincidence the former Mass of this day had the same appointed Gospel), this Sunday is the Feast of the Holy Family: my plan is to hear Mass at the chapel of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, the Catholic Cathedral being closed temporarily for repairs.
