This Diamond Jubilee
This diamond Jubilee, a special priestly anniversary, reflecting the relentless procession of time’s pre-occupation with passing us into its history: A “procedere from uncertainty, reaching out to reveal a tantalising, yet fleeting glimpse of eternity: This diamond Jubilee is celebrated upon a bended knee, a result of reciting a lifetime’s litany of countless grateful Ave’s, a tendency leading to aching limbs, succumbed to infirmity, while despite the pain and struggle, the grief or strain, with great joy, drawing refreshing, replenishing water from the deep oceans of well practised, often recited, Christ-centred, spirituality: This hallowed vocation, remembered today, on this special diamond Jubilee.

I wrote this about Fr Bernard who is celebrating his Diamond Jubilee. He does not know that I have written it! He may read it, he may not! For me it expresses many conversations, our friendship and a shared experience of priesthood. Ad Multos Annos.
