Whew!

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.

My mother thinks it unseemly.

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