Bon Anniversaire !

Very warm congratulations to my friend and colleague Fr. Michael Gollop on the occasion of his 25th. Anniversary of Ordination as Priest in the Church of God this Michaelmas. I have much to be grateful for;  that Michael was sent to our rural group of four Parishes and five Churches some seventeen years ago. Unswerving support and kindness has always been given me as his assistant Curate, sometimes in the face of hostile and difficult circumstances. It is often and increasingly challenging to stay faithful to the traditions and ecumenical vision we have inherited as Anglo-Catholics but the clarity of thought and intelligent mind behind the man have on many occasions not only saved the day but saved the soul as well. This ministry can only become more pressing during these exceptional times. May God continue to bless all his holy Priests! For those who haven't yet benefitted from his wisdom on the blogosphere (and there can't be many reading this!) it is called Let Nothing You Dismay! The link is HERE
