A curious date

Perhaps I should mention that my fortnightly column in the Catholic Thing has resumed, and with luck, it will stay resumed. Today happened to be the eighteenth anniversary of my reception in the Catholic Church (the last day of 2003), and I seized upon this coincidence to recall it.

Tomorrow is 2022. Why shouldn’t I believe this? The evidence is mounting, though I have learnt to distrust almost everything that comes from official sources.
