  1. Nick, a neighboring parish is doing the same thing, scrutinizing everyone relentlessly, with Jeffersonian equality. I love your metaphor about the rope ladder. The other thing of course is that with these Sundays so often coinciding with spring break, the number of assumed dispensations from the (not-optional-three) scrutinies is mountainous. I wonder whether we will ever ever grasp the importance of and initiation rites for the unbaptized, or for that matter, baptism for the rest of us!

  2. “Jeffersonian equality”! Love that. The same “equality” happens at the Easter Vigil when we receive the baptized candidates. It’s always a struggle to convince parishes that receiving the candidates *before* the Vigil is an upgrade so that they can participate with us “in full communion” for the entire Triduum.
