I was discussing liturgy with someone, who raised the question: 'I also don't know if EF is accessible to non-European traditions - Do you have any ideas on that?' Well, of course, being me, I have plenty of ideas on that. But I have little real data. So I am curious, if any of my readers have experience of the traditional rites of the Church in non-European cultural contexts, how they would answer that question. Relevant comments and links to relevant source material will be most welcome in the combox.
Secretive (eg my wife doesn't know I'm writing this blog)
Mendacious (eg my name isn't really Ben Trovato - that comes from an Italian saying: Se non è vero, è molto ben trovato - if it's not true, it's well found (or made up, as we'd say.))
Superficial (I have an interest in almost everything, and can pass myself off as knowing a lot more than I do...)
Self-deluding (my wife probably does know about this blog by now...)
For the record, my kids aren't really called Antonia, Bernadette, Charlie and Dominique either... It would seem unfair to write about them under their true names, so ABCD seemed a good idea. My wife's not Anna either, but again the AB pattern seemed pleasing.
