I have discovered (naively) that school visits (especially ones involving primary school children) to temples, shrines, mosques and synagogues are rampant.
What are our teachers thinking of?
At the risk of repeating myself; do we seek reciprocation in any form?
Do we ask Temple worshippers along to our Benedictions?
When did you last see a coven gathering around the sanctuary? (don't answer that, you know what I meant, let's leave the EMHCs out of this).
Seriously though, this appears to be endemic, no wonder we have much to worry about regarding Fatima.
And when please, if you are a headteacher or a school governor, tell me this; when did your school attend a Mass celebrated in the Extraordinary Form?
Let me answer it for you.......never!
You have never* taken your children to witness the greatest wonder of the Faith on earth, shame on you!
* I am excluding Cardinal Vaughan and The Oratory School from that statement.
And... you may like to know that I am writing this post from the heart of Portsmouth City...was that a knock on the door?
Pure coincidence that I find myself in Inman country. I fear now't from Bishop Philip but there may be a few of the old guard around who might be tempted to give me Hampshire necktie, or worse.
Tomorrow on to Kingston sur Thames followed by Henfield and then, on Sunday, Mass at Taunton.
That's not on the LMS list, I wonder why, it is legit after all.
