I got chatting to a neighbour today, who said, ‘You go to the Franciscans, don’t you? I have someone I talk to up there, away from my friends and my own church. The talking is a help, but just to walk into the place and the common room is to feel at ease.’
It’s good to have Chris stand back and remind us of the duty of welcome, but my neighbour’s testimony should stand alongside his witness. Pax et Bonum!
