Friday Cat-Blogging -- February 1, 2008

I have a momentous announcement to make -- tomorrow, I will be adopting two six-year old cats, Charles and Allie (although they may be given additional names in due course). I will be posting photos of them once I have them, but in the meantime, in honor of their imminent arrival and in honor of St. Ignatius of Antioch whose feast those of us using the traditional Western calendar celebrate today, I offer this icon of cats:

(Don't they look more like they're playing than like they're attacking and eating good St. Ignatius?)

Actually, it looks more like they are wrinkling those fabulous vestments!

Shoo-shoo-bad kitties!!!

Excellency, which old calendar do you use--specifically, which Ordo do you use for the daily office? I assume you use the Monastic Diurnal--do you follow the 1963 Ordo (see or one based on an older calendar? Thank you very much--

I use the Anglican Breviary and Missal, which follow the calendar as they were in the Roman Rite before 1955. Of course, that is at home -- in our parish in Philadelphia, we use the 1970 Missal with the Revised Common Lectionary. And I've spent enough of my life using the 1979 BCP that, at any given moment, it's anyone's guess as to which of these three forms of the liturgy may come out of my mouth!
