My friend today celebrates the 25th anniversary of her profession as a religious sister. This is an achievement and a gift.
She characterises a faithfulness to vocation which is noteworthy in the world of transient values. She works too hard (I made this comment when she was commissioned as a priest in the parish where she now is) and it is easy to get caught up by the all-devouring monster which is parish life.
Her support for me over the last few years has been much appreciated, she is one of the few I can talk with frankly and openly and fly a few kites with; and also be told this is reality or this is fantasy.
Well done and prayers for every day to come
