St Teresa of Lisieux said that she would spend here heaven doing good on earth. If my experience of being at our Cathedral last night was anything to go by that is certainly true. I could not believe the number of people that had made the pilgrimage to her relics. But even more amazing the number of souls who came to Confession. As a priest this is truly a very rewarding ministry. One priest said to me some time ago 'I save up all my goodness, patience and kindness for the confessional. There is no better job for a priest to do than to sit and hear confessions''
May St Teresa continue to bestow many blessings on souls during the visit of her relics to these isles.
