Preach the gospel in and out of season
The parish had a mission last year, the priest leading it being a probably unique fusion of no nonsense orthodox preaching which usually ended with him picking his guitar up and signing at the end. I do remember coming home and saying to the better half " A lot of that will not go down well with some of the parish."
Indeed it didn't.
Three cheers for the PP, his response at a parish meeting.
While he recognised that some of what Fr said might have been termed ‘old fashioned’, it is good to hear what the Church actually teaches rather than what we ‘think’ the Church teaches.
