Well, I've been away too long! I've attended a few exciting liturgies this month. On 4 November, I was able to take in Solemn Evensong and Benediction at St Mary Mag, which was delightful as always. On Remembrance Day, I played conscientious objector and instead of my own parish's Choral Mattins visited the Church of St Martin-in-the-Fields for their Patronal Festival.

I've become something of a regular at Trinity College's Monday Community Sung Eucharists. This month I saw an Agape Meal, a valiantly-attempted Tridentine Mass, and a wonderful 1552 Communion Office.

My own parish celebrated its feast of title this past Sunday, and had a visiting retired suffragan as homilist. She also dedicated the children's chapel, now under the patronage of S. Nicholas.

Tonight I will be going to Evening Prayer at Wycliffe College and comparing it to my experience across the street and up the candle at Trinity.

After a period of neglecting the Office, I am experimenting with online sources. This morning I used the Book of Divine Worship website.

Also, Toronto has elected a new suffragan bishop, Canon Linda Nicholls. She is said to be a moderate conservative and an introvert.

Wow, you do get around, liturgically speaking!

My mother thinks it unseemly.

It reminds me of "Pi" from the book "Life of Pi." Do you know it?
