+ And Starred Words 73: Contrasts

A preacher of the Separation said the finest portion

of their communion service was its climax in "foot-war-shin":

and though my late reversion to my Catholic faith caused shocks,

at Mass, I do not ever have to doff my shoes and socks.

A barefoot college student at Mass may be quite comfortable;

but shoelessness is not compelled by some clodhopping troll.
