Good to Be a Priest

It's been a long day. It's 10.20 p.m. and I'm still working in the office. Tomorrow I'll be on holiday. "Oh Yes!!"

Today, I conducted a funeral for a couple of friends and missed the company of some of my old parishioners from Dewi Sant Church in Cardiff. Sometimes, I think that I wasn't all that bad at being a parish priest after all.

I also got an invitation to conduct another wedding. If my memory serves me right it will take place on 28th December 2009. I'll be there if there isn't a game on. There won't be.

I was also blessed by the willingness of two colleagues from Swansea to help Cytun deliver its Inter-faith work. That was also a blessing. Many thanks Nigel and Alan! Today I enjoyed the work company of people of good faith and energy.

It's a great honour and privilege to be asked to be with families and colleagues in their greatest moments of joy and sorrow. Today reminded me that a priest is always a priest and it's good to be a priest.

It sounds like you're a pretty good deacon, too!
