Today is the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, and, on an infinitely lesser level, the eleventy-first anniversary of the birth of the Professor...
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was duly offered today for "the repose of the soul of John on the one-hundred-and-eleventh anniversary of his birth. " ( I hadn't a clue that somebody in Chicago , of all places, picked up on this ! ) It is appropriate that the recently re-established Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus is today, since Tolkien spent his life and thought dealing with words and names.....
May the name of Jesus Christ be praised now and forever ! Amen !
And rest in the peace and joy of Eru, Professor, Essenen Atarwa, ar Yondova, ar Ainasúleva. Amen.
