This celebration took place last Saturday in Canterbury. It was a happy occasion for our Bishop in his devoted service to our Diocese and the pastoral care of us his clergy and laity. I managed to coax the ageing electronic organ and try to make it sound as “pipe-like” as possible, especially by not using too many stops. I a reader wants to see me on the video, this is possible as I go and receive Communion from my Bishop’s hand.
For a small Church with so few resources, I think we do rather well, each of us putting in our little bit. That’s what being Christians is about!
Excellent liturgy in all respects. Many years! Axios!
Naturally, I would prefer the use of 1549 in a Sarum context rather than Tridentine. Better still, I prefer Sarum – but I am grateful that my Bishop tolerates my using Sarum.
Does he normally use 1549?
axios indeed! Reminded me of olden times at St.Mary of the Angels, Los Angeles CA. in the old days. I often served as subdeacon and/or acolyte back in the ’50s.
Bp. Damien seems like a very pastoral person. You are fortunate to have him as bishop
