Fr David Gemmell died, a week ago today.
On Saturday, Scotland won the Calcutta Cup (=beat England at rugby).
I finished one Araucania sweater
and started another.
Fr David was a good priest, a good man, a good friend. He was of our children’s generation, young for dying. It took everyone by surprise, including David himself, who had gone to Barcelona with Fr Hugh to see a football match. (Celtic lost.) It was a great shock, as well as a great sadness.
You can learn something of the man here when the page goes back up. For now, the cathedral has exceeded its bandwidth limit, whatever that means. Skip the Cardinal, and read the recollections of the Man in the Pew.
I think I’ll leave it there, for today.
