Happy Easter!

D'you all remember that about a merry Lent? On review, there's plenty more I could have done with this Lent, and been happier for it, but right now it is Easter and I feel as happy as a fellow can who also feels as weary as... goodness me, there isn't really a good reason for my feeling weary (none but that one of you good friendly folk will know better), so I shan't complain, nor brag. Must get to sleep now, or my voice won't have recovered from Vigil enough to be any use to the schola at noon.

Happy Easter!

Let it be recorded

... that on this day, your humble anonyblogger tossed aside Shakespeare and his own advice, and wrote and pasted a poste intending to make mockery of ... well, something silly and stupid and intending evil and having its origin in unreason. On its own terms. I now doubt me of the advisability of this kind of disputation, and will instead wish you all a blessed Holy Triduum. May the Passion of O.L.I.C console and ædify us all.

A Moment of Philosophy

Dear Benvolii, dear Benvolia,

There's a certain something... I don't know how it gets into any particular heart or head, but it certainly drags one to that hole out of Creation that started with the Fall... and when things Momentous or Important or Notable or even just Noisy occur it can bring the tendency to the foreground in many of its sufferers...

Some people just don't want to be happy. That is the only explanation I can think of for it. I pray they may not suffer this unwill forever, but there it is. The unwill to be happy meets occasions and expressions of joy with excuses against becoming cheerful, with false praemonitions of madness and delusion in their fellows; as it were, the unwill to be happy seeks to be contagious, except that unwill cannot properly be said to seek, as it is not a thing but an evil, a lack.

Not being one of these, and fervently wishing that none of you reading this will become such for having read me, I shan't display any particular examples of these cracks-in-what-is, and I'm sure you all can think of what I mean anyways. Rather, I will recall that oft-sung, most singable Will, that you may know what to do when you come accross such gloomy folks:
Sigh not so, but let them go,
And be ye blithe and bonny!

May I have the honour to remain,

yours in mirth and no matter

This One Is Different.

Do You Realize??? It's the very first time from æternity that, D.Nos. Georgius S.R.E. Cardinalem Bergoglio has ever been elected Pope. And I don't believe it'll ever happen again!

I think it's also the first time the Cardinals have elected anyone baptised under the patronage of St. George.

Ad multos annos! Hooray!
