Be sure to visit Dappled Things over the next few days. First, you'll get less bile than you're finding here right now (and bile is never a good thing, especially in advent) but second, Fr. Jim is presenting "the Greater Ferias," the liturgical prayers specific to the last week of the Advent season. As I haven't been a regular attendee at daily Mass since Bishop Lennon was Fr. Lennon and I an altar boy, I'm not very familiar with them.
