Austen Liturgical Allegory
If today's faithful Catholic is represented by Elizabeth Bennet, bright, hopeful and coming of age, then the liturgical forms would have to be represented by Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham.
Mr. Wickham is immediately accessible, loves to talk--especially about how bad ol' Darcy is-- has some initial minor flash but soon proves to be tedious and unreliable.
Mr. Darcy at first glance looks stuffy and condescending, but proves over time to be noble, true, of high quality and charitable.
The ordinary and the extraordinary.
Yes, I actually thought this, and then typed it, and therefore I am a loser.
P.S. Mrs. Bennet would represent Marek Bozek. Just sayin'.
