I took an exhausted dog, William, who doesn’t like walking at the best of times, to the lido for a swim, from Westminster then back again via Mass at the Brompton Oratory. He dozed gratefully at the back. William would certainly agree with today’s reading if he could understand it.
“We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” (Tim 6 2:11)
But he doesn’t need to understand it, this is just the life that William lives. All he wants is love, a little food and water, and an occasional walk.
