Despite appalling weather this morning we had an excellent number present for the Parish Mass today at which Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn played the organ and preached. In his sermon Father Mervyn talked about the lepers who had been healed by Jesus and how only one, a Samaritan, had said thank you to Jesus for his healing. We need to constantly say thank you to God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us. He quoted Meister Eckhart, the 13th century mystic and theologian who said “The most important prayer in the world is just two words long: Thank you”
