Tagged again…

Mac, the strongwoman, has tagged me. This time it's about blogging. Hm.

1. Do you attend the Traditional Latin Mass or the
Novus Ordo?

Both. I celebrate the TLM once a week, and would do so more often if I could get away with it.

2. If you attend the TLM, how far do you drive to get there?

I walk around the corner to the church.

3. If you had to apply a Catholic label to yourself, what would it be?

A priest and a sinner.

4. Are you a comment junkie?

No, not really. Now and then.

5. Do you go back to read the comments on the blogs you’ve commented on?

If I want to see whether there has been any responses.

6. Have you ever left an anonymous comment on another blog?

Very, very rarely, and only for some special reason.

7. Which blogroll would you most like to be on?

Don't like to say, really. If I were on a biggie like Fr Zs, then I might feel more under pressure to blog more regularly.

8. Which blog is the first one you check?

Damian Thompson's Holy Smoke, Fr Ray, Fr Z at the moment, but I am fickle.

9. Have you met any other bloggers in person?

Fr Tim, Fr Ray, Fr Michael Brown, Fr John Boyle, Fr Nicholas Schofield, Fr Seán Finnegan, Fr Zuhlsdorf, Fr Michael Clifton, One of the Sisters of the Gospel of Life, the Orthfully Catholic seminarians, Mac the Mulier Fortis, Joanna Bogle

10. What are you reading?

Breviarium Romanum (extraordinary use), St Francis de Sales Treatise on the Love of God, Brown's Life of St Augustine, Asimov's Foundation (vol 1) (again). Just finished (again) Arthur Ransome's Pigeon Post.

Bonus Question! Has your site been banned by Spirit of Vatican II?

I'd love to be worthy of that honour. I love that site; others don't seem to have heard of it. Here's a link, and here's another similar site, the Gorebertines ( a new blog).

Do you use the 1962 Brievary with the Vulagte Pslater or the Pius XII one?

Fr Justin said...

To be precise, the 1961 Breviary with the Vulgate psalter. However, I do have a very convenient travel-size set with the Pius XII psalms. This I take when going away, like today, when I will be away for several days, and would prefer not to lug a large volume with me.

Fr Justin said...

Oh, and I try to use the new calendar as well—at least as far as the Sanctoral cycle goes. It's rather inconvenient, as by my chair I have a stack of different books which I need to use if I'm to make this work. I hate having to say the office of St Theophract the Unbearably Smelly and the Mass of St Slavomir Wszsczcznski the Pole on the same day.
Of course, when I'm away, that doesn't apply.

Ottaviani said...

Isn't it hard and a bit "mix and match" to use the new calendar with the old brievary?

Fr Justin said...

A bit complicated, but better than trying to keep two different feasts at the same time.

Just saw the Spirit of Vatican 2 site for the first time... just to be certain, please tell me this is satire....
