my return

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.

Ah, Cambridge. I did an exchange program at Westcott House in the Fall and absolutely loved every minute of it.

Cambridge was not a roundhead stronghold: she suffered grieviously at the hands of (inter alios) the iconclast Dowsing.
