CAPRANICA MYSTERIES ...The congregation waited patiently as the smoldering fire ignited several small twigs, then spread to the larger branches. Bishop Hadrikus intoned the blessing, and Fr. Capranica chanted the responses. The Easter Fire was blazing. The Mass had begun. In the city two miles away, the druids were preparing for the celebration of the vernal equinox, their spring feast day ceremony, which would begin at midnight. It would take place at an outdoor stone circle in the center of the city. The bodies of aborted children were buried in the circle: the pagans considered children in the womb to be the gods' favorite offering... ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Fr.
