St. Mary's gets a mention again ...

... the liturgy up there is a favorite among the smells and bells crowd, it seems (and count me as a card carrying member of that brigade). Reminds me that I need to get up there to take some pictures before I depart the Palmetto State ...

I followed the links to the original description of the liturgy, which did sound beautiful, reverential, and worthy of the sacred mysteries in which we believe.

Then I read the comments: words like "ridiculous" and "superfluous" used in nit-picking arguments over the role of the deacons and (were they??) subdeacons in the liturgy.

Apparently, even in Heaven, we'll quibble over the size, alignment and polish of halos. ;-)

It must be that whiny aspect of human nature that's just amplified in the blogosphere, and reaches resonant amplitudes in St. Blog's :-)

I wonder how Dante would have dealt with this ...
