My dear friends, I have been out of the country for the last week or so. In England. Highlights include: Matins and Mass at Pusey House, listening to a talk on the place of theology in the university by Aidan Nichols, and getting lost in the wine cellar of St. John's College. It so happened that I spent the feast day of King Charles the Martyr, patron of this blog, in that Roundhead stronghold Cambridge. But right outside my room at St. John's was a statue of St. Charles and his queen, Henrietta Maria, so I felt ready for anything.
