Candlemas

Today marks the end of the Christmas season, the Feast of the Purification of Mary. Take one last opportunity to wish your mystified co-workers a Merry Christmas. Septuagesima comes this Sunday.

I just returned from the Basilica and we had a very nice service.

Merry Christmas to you Timman!

THE
BEES
SACRED
PURPOSE

For centuries beeswax,
In the sanctuary reigned.
Our sacred purpose
From the first ordained.

Producing honeycombs,
All that we handle --
Though our sacred purpose
The Holy Mass candle.

But at the last council
Of the great Church bee
Man turned to man
Birthed sterility.

Graces for fruits,
Crops and offspring,
Schools, churches shut --
Can’t pollinate a thing,

Until man again
On His altars lets towers --
Candles of beeswax,
Sacred purpose all ours!
