"The face of God is that of a merciful father, who is always patient... He does not tire of forgiving us if we know how to turn to him with a contrite heart... The Lord never tires of forgiving. We are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness." (Angelus, March 17, 2013)
Diaconate Ordination at St John's Seminary, Wonersh
Congratulations to Rev. Deacon Philip Smith who was ordained deacon yesterday at St John's Seminary, Wonersh. He has the dubious honour of having me as a Canon Law lecturer. Sadly I was unable be present due to a number of other commitments, particularly the reception of the body of the late Rita Redman whose funeral took place this morning.
Anyway, getting back to Deacon Philip, you can read more at Southwark Vocations. Please remember him and all our seminarians in your prayers.
