Brian,

It was my pleasure. If only processions like that were more common!

My parish just purchased fabulous red cassocks for the servers to wear during Confirmation and Pentecost Masses. I know that "smells and bells" are not essential, but they certainly help manifest the glory of the essentials.

Well put!

To me *that* kind of procession simultaneously makes a powerful statement and poses a provocative question.

Namely:

"Yes, we really do love her this much."

and then...

"Wouldn't you like to find out why?"
