While in Hobart we made do without incense at our Missa cantata last Sunday (making my duties as M.C. a bit easier, be it noted), over at Colebrook they had a bishop to sing Mass, a choir to chant the chant and sing polyphony, and - our thurifer! The church there was packed, thanks be to God.
The Pugin Foundation website provides many useful details about their glorious bicentennial celebrations, centred on a holy Mass celebrated in honour of, and not least to pray for the repose of the soul of Pugin, that great church architect; and Bishop Jarrett's sterling homily may be read there also.
Apparently the solemn service was filmed, and will be broadcast in September.
(It was a pity to miss my former parish priest, now Bishop of Lismore and Apostolic Administrator of Brisbane, but every man must do his duty, and sometimes important events do clash.)
