Me and My Mantilla

I hate having my photo taken... I am tempted to refer to myself as the "Lesser-Spotted" Mulier Fortis!! However, the picture of a cat on my profile just didn't look right, especially as Jess isn't even my cat.

Fr Tim offered to take a photo of me, and on my pointing out that I didn't have a suitable brown paper bag to cover my face (a burkha would give the wrong impression), he told me that the mantilla would do...


















I do think he definitely picked the most flattering view: the back of my head. And in case you're wondering, I'm in front of the Lady Altar at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, Blackfen.

That's a beautiful picture and a beautiful altar. :-)

Like I said, definitely the best view!! It's even more lovely when we have Mass there on a Saturday morning...

Argh! One altar that hasn't been subjected to the wreckovation schemes of Vatican II!!!

Nice mantilla btw :)

Actually, Andrew, the Lady Altar was the victim of reckovation in another parish... Fr Tim offered to give it a home when he discovered it was going to be thrown out.

...the only down side is that it makes our High Altar look a little plain by comparison!!

Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?

What a marvellous sight to behold!

Why, thank you, Anonymous

*simpers and bats eyelashes*

...no, it's ok, I do realise that you're talking about the Lady Altar and the rather snazzy statue...
