A brief overview of my sabbatical experiences in the U.K.

I'm writing this from my rooms at St. John's College, Cambridge, where I have spent the past three, blissful days. Today was Ascension Day, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

The Choir of All Saints Worcester, and the Rev. Mike Dangelo joined us to create another memorable Candlemas. Listen to some of the musical highlights, and read a transcript of Fr. Dangelo's homily.

"...the painting depicts, in late medieval sensibilities the Angel Gabriel kneeling before the Blessed Virgin. In his hand an olive branch and faintly in the golden paint the words in a direct line from Gabriel's mouth 'Ave Maria gratia plena dominvs tecvm:' Hail, Mary full of grace the Lord is with you. And Mary, somewhere between fear and incredulity is turned away from the angel, caught in an eternal wince."
