“In all this mediaeval religious poetry there is much that we could not use now. Many of the hymns are quite bad, many are frigid compositions containing futile tricks, puns, misinterpreted quotations of Scripture, twisted concepts, whose only point is there twist. But there is an amazing amount of beautiful poetry that we could still use.”
— Rev. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

Brilliant Idea for A Parish Fundraiser
published 13 September 2015 by Fr. David Friel

(N.B. Please understand that this post—and I presume this congregation’s fundraiser—are meant to be lighthearted.)
