|Members of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham from the length and breadth of Britain were in London over the weekend of 19-21 September for the Ordinariate's first ever festival.|
Our beloved Mother M. John Cunniwicke has posted a very revealing entry about the recent
Cuniwicke tells us, "Somebody whose name I cannot now quite remember used to keep saying, RITA!" However, I'm not sure who Rita is. I know who Martha is, (As in Arthur and Martha) and I am told Gladys is in East Anglia and Ethel is in Melbourne. No one seems to know Rita!
Reverend Mother tells us the Fest was "absolutely glorious ... you could tell it was all clicking superbly by the way that everybody laughed at even the slightest provocation." Indeed!
Many old and new faces where there.
It seems even Father John Crappie came out for the event. Who knew!
Wouldn't be a proper fest without a representative from the Dominican Rite. Especially since those who were planning to serve in the Inquisition's Rack and Ruin Ministry during the Cardinal Capote pontificate seem now to have lots of extra time on their hands. While the photo is not quite as clear as we might like, I'm certain this Friar is not Larry Lew. Perhaps Auggie Thompson?
Prelates of every rank were present.
Perhaps a future Ordinary and his spouse from a yet to be formed, by popular demand no doubt, ordinariate for Fantasy Island. This heterosexual couple is obviously not from this ordinariate.
But Father, but Father... Mother Cunniwicke tells us there were "loads and loads" of laity as well! All you've shown us so far is all the clergy.
Yes. Well. You should know by now, readers and readerettes, that those who have been ontologically elevated to dizzying heights of metaphysical superiority take pride of place in matters ecclesiastical. Without those who have had hands laid upon them and anointed with Oil, there would be no church. Then where would you be? Hmmm? Probably sailing down the river of sin on Satan's pleasure raft!
Yes the unwashed and un-anointed laity were there.
