Still trying to figure out which Martha

Overheard at Mass on Sunday

on November 25, 2013

I actively discourage whispering in the pews before Mass begins, but could not actually take umbrage with the following:

Angharad:  Advent starts next Sunday.

Iseult:  Thank goodness.

Angharad:  I know.  We get Latin again.

Iseult:  I don’t see why we can’t have it all the time.

Angharad:  Yes.  It’s so much better.

Iseult:  Plus the hymns are better.

Angharad:  That too.

      Oh yes, it is true! It was also cute when Iseult started singing the Sanctus and Agnus Dei on the way home. Angharad’s a little more shy about singing out loud, but then she joined in too. I’m always thankful that at least some things are going right.

        Correct me if I’m wrong (I’m still relatively new to your blog), but Iseult is your younger daughter, and Angharad is the elder?

      • Maeve says:

        Yes, Angharad is 20, nearly 21 and Iseult is 14. She (Anghard) is at the local Tech College and plans to transfer to College of Charleston to finish up her education degree (next fall, I think); she teaches CCD to 3rd graders at our parish and Iseult is her assistant. She also works in the afterschool program at the parish school. They’re an interesting pair. I think I’m very blessed.
