This morning Father Martin presided at the Parish Mass and Father Mervyn read the Gospel, preached and concelebrated. In his sermon Father Mervyn said that we were all a bit like St. Thomas; we had our doubts but it was faith which over came them. He pointed out that it was St. Thomas alone who declared “My Lord and my God” when he saw the risen Christ. We also have Christian hope which is not just some form of wishful thinking like saying “I hope West Ham, or Tottenham or Chelsea win the FA Cup.” Christian hope is clear and unwavering.
