Today Father Mervyn presided and Father Martin concelebrated at the Parish Mass, read the Gospel and preached to another packed church. In his sermon Father Martin described 2012 and especially the summer as a time when we, the UK, had enjoyed considerable success. He mentioned the Tour de France, the Olympics, tennis etc. Sportsmen and women looked for success in their chosen sport and this engendered a desire for success amongst the rest of us. It was this desire for success that had led James and John the sons of Zebedee, to ask Jesus for the privilege of sitting one on his right and one on his left when his kingdom arrived. Jesus pointed out that this was not something he could grant but he would allow them to participate in the suffering that he would eventually undergo.
