Me too …

 I Am a Restorationist. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

But slowly, so slowly, I began to learn things. Part of it came from my study of Medieval and Renaissance literature. Part came from my ending up as a professor at a Dominican-run college, so that I—whose boyhood church and school were named after him—was reading Thomas Aquinas for the first time. Part came from my having to teach Renaissance and Medieval art and architecture. A great part came from my dear wife, a Protestant, who knew the old hymns, so that I was singing, for the first time in my life—because she insists on going to Mass only where the music is real—such powerful songs as “The King of Love My Shepherd Is,” and “Thine Is the Glory.”

I have had a low opinion of the Novus Ordo since Pope Pill imposed it on us. I just don’t have any other church to go to. Woe is me. (These things really mean something to you if you’re 80 years old and are a person of faith.)
