Callan: bravo.

I have obsessively checked the MBS webcam and never seen more than the tabernacle. Does Jesus ever come out?

HT - it's obviously just luck. I clicked on the webcam site a few minutes ago and a monstrance was on the altar though largely obscured by a monk's shoulder. On the change, a monk was behind the altar and appeared to be reaching for the monstrance. I then read the thread. Having just gone back, the monstrance is gone and the tabernacle door (formerly open) is now closed.

Try again later!

I've just seen that! Wasn't it magnificent! Well done Callan... although making an IJ remake less horrific than Hollywood managed can't be that hard.

Oh, and yes LD. If the MBS were exposed during the recessional, reversing out would be necessary. Which is probably why It's always put safely away first.

Gremlin and I have a theory that the monks have competitions to see who can complete an aspect of their duties in less than 59 seconds.

I can see a huge chart on the wall to the left, where the monks are given black marks if they are seen on camera. Rather surprising it is Brother Gorgio (83 years old) who holds the record for "fastest removal of our Lord".

No, Ley Druid - nor yet is it an Anglican one (one cheap shot deserves another). You must be thinking of "north-ending" or good-humouredness or impeccable sang-froid, or some such delightful eccentricity.

Silly boy! Proximity and attitude are all. There would be the world of difference between standing at the farther end of Holyrood Palace's lawn with the Monarch some yards away in congress with others (during one of HMQ's al fresco bashes), and turning my back right in front of her, obscuring her from the sight of all subjects there present, and chatting to them about her. A fortiori, the immediate proximity of Our Lord in the Sacred Species ought to command the maximum reverence consistent with dignity and reasonable practicality.

Though there may be a little madness in this liturgical tic of mine, yet there's some good Catholic method in't.

*[A deft touch here, although "Had Anglicans the", etc. (and "sacred sacrament" is such a sloppy translation of "sanctissimum sacramentum") would be so much more elegant.]

Presumably if the Lord Chancellor can turn his back on the Sov when standing directly in front of her, whilst she's seated on her throne, no less, you would be safe to do so at a garden party...

Indeed, Master Ordinaire. Shockingly rude "modernisation" of Derry I's, this turning one's back in the face of the Lord's Anointed - whilst she's formally exercising her Sovereignty at that!

Ironically enough, I think Lord Former-Flatmate has reintroduced the retrograde descent from the steps of the throne - he'll be the last to have the opportunity, I suppose.

I've visited the link on several occasions now, and have seen nothing 'move' (although the door in the background was once enticingly ajar).

Has anyone worked out whether they have a specific time (or times) for Exposition of the MBS? According to the testimonials elsewhere on the site, seeing It would give my spiritual life no end of a boost...........

I think that one of the nicest things about the BSW is the way that it's never quite exactly the same from one hour to the next. (I can't vouch for the minutes.) A while ago the chapel was dark, with the lone candle shining through; now, someone has switched on the lights, and everything is bathed in a flat white florescence.

There's got to be a sermon in there somewhere.

Partway through the dense selection of "Quick Links" is the Adoration Schedule - along with a caveat that with only three monks and a raft of other concerns these are subject to being forgotten about. And a promise to do better if someone else helps out - any shipmates in Florida willing to fill in?

Who needs to be in Florida? Surely the great advantage of the Webcam is that anybody can volunteer to Adore via this Inter-web business?

There'll be a Benediction Radio Show next...

The lack of pauses is probably because it's the Grail psalter, with the four-line (or more) stanzas, and unless they have an edition that's got the half-line asterisk (which they don't, since they use the USA LoTH four-volume edition), it's more usual to pause between stanzas rather than at the half-verse.

The monks at Saint Meinrad Archabbey chant the Grail psalms to their own Grail-specific psalm tones, with a pause between stanzas; the Episcopalian monks at St Gregory's Abbey in Michigan have made a pointed edition with the half-verse asterisk so they can use regular Gregorian psalm tones.

For some reason, I find that an exceptionally disturbing thought.

I might try to abjure from the Jesus Webcam for a while - I'm starting to regard the MBS as a mighty suspicious Entity.

True, I suppose. My addiction to this is quite worrying -- I have it in the background at work all day. [Ultra confused]

But Ian, are you taking screen grabs like me - seeing how the shadows change from one end of the day to the other?

Um...no.

It's 3.30pm UK time and, as far as I can tell (having studied several screen grabs over the past few days), our brothers in Florida have yet to open the curtains today.

Am I worrying unnecessarily?

GL-OOOOO-RY!!!! Natural light pervades the sanctuary!

You know there are times we are taken to the very limit of our endurance - and it's what we learn as we wait for deliverance that we take with us for the rest of life's journey.
