Harvest Festival - 24
I'm not a fan of Hallowe'en, but I do rather enjoy the pumpkin lanterns! On Sunday we shall be celebrating the glory of the saints in light - all very different to this scary looking image!
Today many children will be attending the final day of the harvest celebrations at Wisley - pumpkin carving workshops! We must make sure that we Catholics don't get a reputation for being killjoys - it can all be harmless fun - it is just a pity that some youngsters (and adults) take things too far.
By the way, I know that this particular pumpkin was carved by someone who is a sinner through and through - you guessed it - the Deacon of Ham! Well, that's my chances of ever getting a red hat ruined, particularly as I note that 'someone' in Rome visited my blog earlier today.
