One thing about today is that it is the feast of St. Thomas the Apostle (whom: pray for us!). Another thing is that in the hecticity, to invent a word, of the post-semester, I forgot that. And so when reading the office, I read the regular readings. I'm sorry to have missed St. Thomas, but I am happy to have read the Gospel reading from Luke 1. Here are some edifying and choice bits:
and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
And then our Lady spake the Magnificat.
