St Bede

One of the joys of this Feast of All Saints is the reading in the second nocturn because it is by St Bede. 

It is of course wonderful but more than that, it is a nice reminder to the world of who St Bede is. Indeed that he exists. I'm often called 'Pete' by people on the telephone trying to sell me new central heating, or gravy or something. If only they read the 1962 office, then I could say "No! Bede... Like on the feast of All Saints" and that would clear up the problem pretty smartish. 

Happy feast from me and St Bede.
