- Pardon: "relapled" is not a quaint Britishism but a slip of the key:
"replaced", of course, Bp. Peter being a vicar bishop. PS

With all due respect, Michael, YOU ARE GOOFY.
If you go to a new calendar church then KEEP THOSE
FASTS on THAT calendar. If you go to an old calendar
parish, then keep the fasts on THAT calendar. You
cannot mix the two and you should know that. Also, how
can you condemn those who are on a different calendar
than you? Does heaven have a set calendar? Maybe you
know more than we do. And while I'm at it, why are you
fasting in the first place? Is it to follow the rules
(remember the Phraisees?) or is it to bring you closer
to Christ? Sometimes I wonder about some of your
postings, especially to clergy.
Love in Christ,
Sub-deacon Lawrence Most
