This Warms My Royalist Heart

The Irish Elk reports that this evening a Mass will be held at Boston's Church of the Advent in honor of the Feast of King Charles the Martyr, executed murdered at the hands of Parliament on January 30, 1642.

(Mmmmm.....Oxford Movement Anglo-Catholicism.....mmmmmmmm.....Just flipping around the Church's website had me drooling. We're talking serious smells n' bells here.)

Our antlered friend also posts a hymn to Charles that, somehow or other, I doubt I could convince my own Rector to let us sing. Ah, well.

Heh, their newsletter is called "Smoke Signals". I like it :) When I visit my buddies in boston, I need to check the Church of the Advent out.

Now are these the establishmentarian crowd, the disestablishmentarian crowd, or the antidisestablishmentarian crowd?

Heck if I know. My church confuses me on occasion, I shall freely admit :)
