Father Martin newly back from his holiday, presided at today’s Parish Mass. Father Mervyn concelebrated, preached and led the Intercessions. In his sermon Father Mervyn related how, many years ago he had viewed a car on a garage forecourt. The chrome sparkled. Just the car Father Mervyn wanted he thought all those years ago but what Father didn’t realise until he drove it was that inside things were not so good. The floor was coming away from the body work, the exhaust was completely blown. The engine was filthy and burning oil at a tremendous rate and the radiator leaked like a sieve plus the boot was full of old junk. Yet standing in the drive it looked wonderful. All you could see was the shiny exterior. Driving down the road most folks would have seen a nice shiny car that looked good for it's age. Father knew better. Some people, like the Scribes and Pharisees, keep all the outward religious observances but, in fact, are not what they seem inside. Could that be an accusation against us?
