Otium Sanctum Pars Secundum

The Paulinus family have enjoyed a happy holiday in Crete - hence no blogging for the past fortnight. The young Paulinus boys were intrigued by the visual presence of the Orthodox Church on the island. So many little chapels dot the countryside and the seaside, little shrines are virtually at every corner of the road but good to see 3 or 4 priests through the weeks in the kafenions or supermarket in their riassas (not one of them over 40). We only heard bells once, though - the beautiful sound of the Angelus drifting across the inner harbour from the tiny Catholic Cathedral in Chania.
