Guy Fawkes Night - from the burning of a traitor to Parliament itself
Cranmer would like to wish all of his British readers and communicants a most blessed Guy Fawkes Night, and an exhortation to his non-British (foreign[?], except the colonial) readers and communicants to bear with us while we indulge in this annual eccentricity of which so few now know the origin, meaning or purpose.
If any do not manage to find an effigy of Mr Fawkes to commit to the consuming flame, there is an alternative.
One has to wonder, on the day we commemmorate deliverance from a seditious continental terrorist plot and the treacherous subversion of Rome, that the continental powers have achieved the subjugation of England, her Monarch and her Parliament, and the Treaty of Rome has triumphed. The wheel is come full circle.
