In the meantime, a small diversion. The adjacent photograph was snapped by Dr Chris Steward in the split second when your correspondent was about to remove the mitre from the bishop's head. It looks as if a murder were about to take place...
The Mass was the Easter Vigil celebrated Pontifically in the Extraordinary Form by the Most Rev'd Basil Meeking (sometime-Bishop of Christchurch, New Zealand) in S' Aloysius' church, Caulfield North (Archdiocese of Melbourne). The mitre was made by the Studio and the vestments, based on the well-known vestments of S' Thomas Becket, were also designed some years ago by us.
