Congratulations to Rita and Michael.
The first of this weekends weddings, we've got another two tomorrow and a reception into the Church on Sunday! Getting married seems to be fashionable this year, the most this year than since I came to the parish. I love celebrating sacraments, it is what being a priest is about!
...And another nice thing, I had an invitation this morning to Gerrard Hatton's diaconate ordination, one of the factors in Gerrard's call to the priesthood was the example of my best friend, his parish priest, who died over a decade ago.
It's the fecundity of grace, it gives meaning to priestly celibacy - does that make sense?
