What would we do without the Ordinariate?

Somehow everyone seems to be on holiday at once. Fr Marcin from New Milton is on his post-Easter break in Poland (where he is making arrangements for a pilgrimage later in the year) and Fr David from here in Lymington is not back from his break until Monday. So we have been holding the fort - 'we' in this case being a couple of retired priests and me. There have been sick visits and confessions to hear; but between the Mass this morning in Our Lady of Mercy, Lymington and the Vigil Mass this evening  in Our Lady of Lourdes, New Milton Jane and I have managed a picnic and a couple of hours in the Rothschild gardens at Exbury.

On Tuesday - Tuesday is at present notionally 'day off'- we go to London, to meet up with friends and visit the Gallery at Buckingham Palace. But first there is tomorrow,with another early start for Sunday's Ordinariate Mass in Southbourne. If the weather holds Monday could provide my second sea swim of the season- though to be honest I only stayed in for a minute or so yesterday. May in the Channel is not like August in Malta.
