Here's an Advent Promise for you:
I will not write any blog entries about the "Great 'O' Antiphons". This will set me apart from virtually every other Christian blogger on the planet, who wax tedious every year at this time, going on about the majestic splendor of these antiphons. The irony is that these posts are usually intended as a bit of liturgical history, yet it is precisely that history that shows these antiphons to be fairly unremarkable. I suspect there is still a tendency out there in some quarters to think that there may be a reader lurking in a cave somewhere who does not already know all about these things, but let's face it: if the person is reading your blog in the first place, then he already knows all about the O antiphons. It's a self-selecting audience.
I'll try to find something even more tedious to blog about, so that I can maintain my record as the most tiresome blogger on the net.
