QuotationI went down in the dark and snow to say my three masses early (others are not saying the 3 Masses anymore - a few of the older priests are). Came back had breakfast, read some Antonin Artaud on the plague theme (Camus tried to use this but failed imaginatively and otherwise. Artaud's thesis is a bit far fetched anyway. Plague - Theater).
