St Matthias

This being a bissextile (or leap) year, the feast of St Matthias falls on, not the 24th, but the 25th of February, at least according to my 1962 Dominican Breviary. To-day being a Saturday, I was able to mark this feast with a sleep-in, before hurrying to morning Mass (OF and therefore ferial), and - in order to keep my determination to read the whole daily pensum of the Office - spent some time before and after Mass in reading from Matins to Terce. The major half of the Hours done, time to go to town, read the newspaper, and have brunch as is my wont: the second coffee awaits, and a salmon omelette is on its way...
