They vested the altar! YAY!

That has to be a good sign, right?

(oh, for the love of everything that's good and holy... I can't access the cam from my work! Grrr...)

And once you've been responsible for it, you notice it, which becomes a penitential thing. "Oh God, forgive me for thinking about the fact that the altar linens weren't evenly adjusted instead of paying attention to the Eucharistic prayers". [Smile]

Yes. Perhaps they have an altar guild, or the woman seen of late is one who might have made the altar cloth. Or a friend or associate. Or sibling!

I think it is incumbent upon them to make certain that the "one-minute" loop always has something entertaining on it. Right now it's terribly static. This simply will not work in our visual age.

A conga line would be good.

Oooh! They've changed the angle! It's now focused down on the altar.

This means that the tacky portrait of the Sacred Heart is somewhat obscured in the shadows. It's a Good Thing.

It seems to be focussed down on the altar overnight and up until the sleepy-heads get moving at the crack of "Oh my, is that the time?" It also seems to be table-clothless at that time - but I haven't seen a repeat of the palaver of "Getting the linens straight to the satisfaction of everyone concerned" and there seems to be something hanging over the edge during the daytime.

Do you think they've been cheating and just transmitting a still?

Checking in after some days away, I now see that there are the two sanctuary lamps in place (no way to tell if they are lit or not under the current viewing conditions). And when and where did that giant black stripe around the top of the altar pedestal come from?

If it were a shadow, it would have gradations of black to gray. Notice how it cleanly intersects the shadows cast by the left and right overhangs of the altar top.

well, to my weary, bleary eyes it looks like there's some sort of cloth on the altar and a velvet rope ready to keep the peons out of the altar area.

But, no Jesus. Sirs, we would see Jesus!

They're back to the old pulled-away shot, behind the reredos (or whatever that thing is supposed to be).

Dear monks: We have been patient for many moons. WHEN are you going to get this thing WORKING PROPERLY again?

The lack of a functional BSW is clearly drawing some minds into unspiritual channels. Do you want that on your collective conscience? I should hope not.

So fix it. Now. Please. Thank you.

Present RC practice as I know it is that the relic is 'entombed' in a small niche on the top of the altar, centered at the edge where the priest will be consecrating the elements of the mass.

Perhaps the altar top was mistakenly made without provision for the relic and has had to be returned for further work.

If they have a relic big enough to require entombing in the altar base, they're a much more influential group than meets the eye. [Eek!]

This sort of problem with the altar could also explain the lack of activity.

On the other hand, I'm still bothered by the presence of the sanctuary candles since the webcam shot as I receive it makes it impossible to see if either of them is lit. Combined with the same and blurry long-shot image of the tabernacle (is the door open or closed?), there is really no way to know about the status of the Real Presence at any given time. Which does make the screen shot a matter of curiosity and nothing else.

I don't know, but about a month ago, about a month after they'd put the tablecloth on, the whole top vanished. It can't have been that heavy a cloth, surely?

A clue to the mysterious non-appearance of Jesus at last? I've just had a look at the website (out of mere habit, I'd given up hope of seeing anything happening) and found this:
quote:
Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament will not be in the tabernacle until construction is finished and we are waiting for our Altar to be repaired.
I wonder what happened to the altar?
These guys are worse than Bill the Builder, the chap who's been doing my screened-in-porch ("Ah, yeah, this is about a three, four-day job") for the last few months -- a couple of hours at a time.

Dear Santa: I have been a good girl. My Christmas wish is that the monks will get off their butts and get the BSW fully functional by the Feast of the Nativity. Love, Ross.

I'm not dead yet.
