I was really going to post this on time, but due to illness and other factors it got put on the back burner.  I was going to past a quote from the Liturgical Year, but I don’t have it handy so I’ll paraphrase.  Abbot Gueranger said that due to general ignorance and lapsed practice amongst […]

Restoring the Domestic Church
