Daffodils, bound up with golden ribbon...

...were blessed and distributed  at the end of Mass today, to be given to mothers. Lots of children enthusiastically presenting them to their mothers with hugs...

 It was suggested that older people whose mothers had already gone to their reward might like to put their flowers at the Lady Altar, and it was rather touching to see  this...

Later, over Laetare drinks in the pub, I was greeted with "saw your piece in the American whatsit thingummy..." and it turned out to be this piece in the Catholic World Report, an update on the Ordinariate...
