Today, in the diocese of Arundel and Brighton, is the Solemnity of the Annunciation, yesterday was the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, tomorrow for St Patrick's, Woodingdean is their Patronal Feast. Alright, we are not quite in communion with the universal Church, but we do our best!
Our problem is we haven't got, in the words of The Tablet's perfidious Robert Mickens, "a trained liturgist". Ultimately, "doing the red and saying the black" is about communion with the Universal Church.
Liturgy isn't just about how we say our prayers but how we live our lives, it is not "a bolt on" but it should govern even times and seasons, feasting and fasting.
I agree with the phrase SAVE THE LITURGY, SAVE THE WORLD, it was the liturgy, the proper ordering of times and seasons and festivals that bound the people of Israel together. No wonder the calendar was really, according to Bede, the main substance of the Council of Whitby and the main cause 0f the division between the Celtic and Catholic Church. It was only when the calendar was dealt with, that true religion could follow, (religion = religare: meaning to bind again).
