The BBC writes about a bug in the Norton anti-virus software that used to paralyze a software called Visual Liturgy before the bug was eventually fixed by Symantec. The antivir recognized a crucial file in Visual Liturgy as spyware and deleted it. As a result, Visual Liturgy did not work, causing enormous trouble for a large number of Church of England parishes that rely on the software with planning their services.

Church House Publishing, the creator of Visual Liturgy, are particulary unhappy about what they regard as an unusually long time it took Symantec to address the issue. According to a spokesman of the publisher:

“As Christians, we’re used to not always getting answers to our prayers immediately, but this seemed to take the biscuit,” said the spokesman.

Then again, was it not written that God’s mills grind slowly?
