Everything and Nothing

We travelled up a long journey through the Isle of Axholme to Crowle, fighting the traffic streaming from London to arrive at the back of a packed church for the sixtieth anniversary Mass of our old parish priest at Market Rasen, Father Philip Bailey.

One thing I take away with me, not this beautiful church with shades of Keble College nor the sung mass and its cadences but what Father Philip said in his talk afterwards:

“I have never owned anything in my life but you people have given me all I have ever needed.”
