QuotationRain and mist all day for St. Cecilia [Feast day]. Hugo Rahner on the sacred dance in refectory. His book on Man at Play is very good. Other day when Rahner was talking of homo ludens [man playing], the witty Brother Isidore (in refectory near me) whipped out a box of cough drops and pointed to the name Ludens. Monastic humor.
