Catholic custom: the "lectio brevis"...

On the first day of class, by Roman tradition, the professor gives a lectio brevis, which means the class ends early after a brief introduction.

One of my seminary professors always did this; it was great!

Sounds good to me. I'll have to try that in my lectures. Only once a year, you say?

Yes, classes started on Monday. Some do it on the first as well as the last day of lectures, too.
