Delights, Delicacies, Domes and Dictionaries.

Today I had the most delightsome* lunch in the company of our subdeacon, thurifer and dearest Perpetua, which concluded with a giant bowl or rather plate of chocolate ice cream. But not to be outdone, the four of us then journeyed to the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady of Victories, one of the few churches in Melbourne which has not been subject to the whims of a parish council or the winds of liturgical innovation, where amidst stain glass depicting the Battle of Lepanto, Sts. John Vianney and Pius X, we stopped to rest a little while and revive our drooping spirits.

JJSS (Lactantius with grateful thanks to Perpetua for permitting me to write this under her name.)

* This word was coined by Omar, the thurifer referred to above, and is a hybrid of delightful and wholesome. Feel free to use it next time in a sentence. ICEL is already showing interest in it.
