God's Frs: the Sequel

On Tuesday evening we welcomed last year's newly ordained back to the college for Mass: Frs Paul Johnson, Paul Leonard, Dominic Coslett and Michael Smith. Fr Paul Leonard (aka Fr Lenny) celebrated the Mass, and Fr Dominic preached beautifully about the story of Zacchaeus in the tree, and how like Jesus' unexpected visit, the sacraments can bring unexpected graces to our lives. Fr Paul Johnson (aka Fr Johnno) gave a speech after dinner in which he told us that the most important thing to take away from seminary - the only thing that ultimately matters - is our relationship with Christ. Nothing else will fall into place without this, but with it - to quote St Paul - 'who can be against us?'

It was wonderful to have our alumni back, and in the morning some of us went to a 'greasy spoons' for a cooked breakfast. I love this sort of fraternity among the brethren!
