More d'Alton and some greetings...

I cannot but be troubled by the theories disseminated by the New Biblical Criticism. The Mosaic Pentateuch has become a mosaic Pentateuch […] but at least we’ll never go the way of the Anglicans. I can’t imagine the Curia ever permitting the Mass to be celebrated in a language with no more than a vestigial subjunctive.
-The Posthumous Papers of an Abbot by Fr Linus d’Alton

Auguri to Matthew of the Holy Whapping on his patronal feast! (Though I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he venerates a more obscure St. Matthew as his patron.)
