Twas the night before, the night before.....

Time for a bunch of Milwaukee parishes to put away their blue clandles, blue vestments, and blue polyester altar cloths...their version of advent comes to a close tomorrow.

Years ago, when some parish "liturgist", somewhere, was getting ready to throw into the trash a variety of sanctus bells, thuribles, and dignified tapestries, they happened to find a blue chasuble that might have (admittedly mistakenly) made by the kind ladies of the Blue Army of Mary.

In a bow to the misues of a truth that pervade us due to modern subjectivism, one of these liturgists recalled that in a very obscure ritual tradition in medievel England (the Sarum Rite) blue was an advent color. So, hey, let's toss aside the penitential tenor of Advent and switch to something more akin to the colors of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Now, to some, this may be a color symbolic of penance and/or waiting, but it is not the traditional color of penance. Nor, in fact is it the dark midnight, or navy, blue (almost black) or the Sarum blue. Isn't that ironic, we get rid of purple in lieu of a a blue that should look like the requiem vestments we also tossed a few years ago.

I would love to hear from readers about the parishes in Milwaukee where the liturgical norms were ignored in favor of light blue, sky blue, royal blue, etc.....

On the tidbit front, following on yesterday's concerns about the real lack of conviction on the part of Archbishop Dolan I was sent the following link: www.gamaliel.net/mapa/pdf/20050317MemorialLetter.pdf

So, did you know that St. Francis Seminary (HIS seminary) accepts donations from the infamous (discussed on a number of Blogs) Milwaukee Priests Alliance?

Enough for today. Always looking to hear about liturgical abuses in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Welcome aboard to the wonderful world of blogging. I wanted to pass onto you the code for pasting links.

When you go to "create" click on the "edit HTML" tab. from there you can paste this:

In between the quotation marks, paste the internet address of whatever link you want up there, and inbetween the > < you can type whatever text you want displayed.

So now when you do this stuff, The Coolest New Blog On The Internet! will show up instead of just an internet address.

Hope this helps,
