Taking a break...

...from some work, I found some good reading on the Internet. Columnist Mark Steyn, for example...

Good Morning Auntie Joanna!

What a pleasure to view Seasons and Feasts on EWTN with yourself as mine very genial host! And in your Guernsey, too - my native isle.

I didn't know that Christmas pud is known as plum pudding because of its colour rather than its contents - so thank you for that.

In return, I'll share with you that Stir Up sunday is actually the Sunday next BEFORE Advent, the collect for that day being the wonderful

Stir up, O Lord,
the wills of your faithful people
that, richly bearing the fruit of good works,
they may by you be richly rewarded;

through Jesus Christ our Lord
who is alive with with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God now and for ever.


Will EWTN repeat the programme? I'd love to use parts of it in my RE lessons. The kids will enjoy it!

Best wishes

Auntie Fran

Pity Steyn left the Catholic church for Anglicanism. Perhaps he may see the light sooner rather than later...
