'"Participate" - the cant word'

 It's not for everyone

Taken from Evelyn Waugh diary entry, Easter 1964:

'"Participate" - the cant word - does not mean to make a row as the Germans suppose.  One participates in a work of art when one studies it with reverence and understanding."

Elizabethan martyrs, pray for us.
