In principio ... (In the beginning ...)

... of The Roman Sacristan blog.
Things are awkward as I get the hang of this, but I wanted to begin this on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.
What would a Roman Catholic Sacristan have to say that anyone would want to listen to? I guess we'll see. Several people have asked me to share any knowledge I might have, especially on liturgical things.
Blogs seem to develop a personality all their own, and with this being related to a sacristy, you never know what you'll find in a typical sacristy, which is probably what will happen here.
So, with God's blessing, hopefully I can help serve the Church in some way, even if it is in some tiny way.

Please pray for me,

The Roman Sacristan

Sweet! I love that statue of the Church kicking Luther's @ss. That's awesome. I'm not too sure about Muhamed, because you might get your head cut off. But's it's good to be martyr.

Maybe you should start by explaining to those woefully uneducated Catholics what a Sacristy actually is.

You have a winner. I just started a blog myself so I can sympathize.

Nice blog. Would it be possible to have links to the various liturgical documents such as: Sacrosanctum Conciliam, Liturgiam Authenticam, and Redempionis Sacramentum?

I'll try to get links up as soon as I can figure out how to do it. However, I hadn't thought of posting links to documents in a sidebar. I'll have to see what I can do. Part of it is that I need to learn some html and css code.
But you do have a good idea. That is certainly an area I want to cover in this blog.
