Father James and I did not have as much time as we would have liked today to follow the magnificent visit of the Holy Father in this country.
We served today in hospital and in home communions. This afternoon we had the joys of spending two hours in front of the Lord, in silence and part of which accompanied by good people.
This evening we had the first meeting of a new group called Veritas. These are those who last academic year were in Year 6 and have now started their secondary education. I was expecting between six and ten and in fact we had 30! They all want a next this space.
So a lot of catching up to do as I watch the moving images of the Pope in Westminster Hall, it seems that the Pope stands at the capital of relativism and offers there the balm and medicine of faith and reason. It feels like the light has been taken to shine afresh.
I still have to watch the Pope in the Abbey, but now things to prepare for tomorrow. Here we celebrate St Edith of Kemsing, a local saint. We shall have morning Mass, afternoon wedding and then hope to go to Hyde Park to join the Parish party who leave here after Mass.
