It was a late night and the eyes hang a little heavy this morning. But it is good to be here, to quote the apostle.
After yesterday’s landmark address by Cardinal Sarah it is hard to avoid a precipitate sense of having been present at something important. It is perhaps the sort of day that one might look back on and say “I was there when…”.
One striking thing about Cardinal Sarah’s address was the humility with which he spoke, even when he was speaking with passion. During the several rounds of applause be kept his head bowed, milking nothing from the applause, not even a shy smile. He was there for the message not the glory.
Now, for Dom Alcuin Reid’s paper to open the day. He is speaking on the debate on liturgical reform in the Council floor.
