Bought a second hand boat, took a big fat girl who worked for me out in it, she jumped up and down in it and flooded the inside and electrics, thereby thoughly F***n' it. Where was St Nicholas then? I ask!

On a more serious note, I see Archbishop Oscar Romero is next up for elevation to sainthood. This seems to be in keeping with the current Popes enhanced grasp of reality. It's a funny thing but I wouldn't be the great RC cheer-leader but one of the most reassuring "readings" I have come across is this - from the same Oscar Romero -

"It helps, now and then, to step back and take a long view.

The Kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is even beyond our vision. We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work. Nothing we do is complete, which is a way of saying that the Kingdom always lies beyond us. No statement says all that could be said. No prayer fully expresses our faith. No confession brings perfection. No pastoral visit brings wholeness. No program accomplishes the Church's mission. No set of goals and objectives includes everything.

This is what we are about. We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development. We provide yeast that produces far beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realisms that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders; ministers not messiahs. We are prophets of a future not our own."

Yeah, Rocker, it seems we can guarantee at least one "visionary", who "sometimes accepts donations", to come crawling out of the woodwork every year. Quickly followed by an avalanche of twits ringing in to Joe Duffy espousing the veracity of the claims being made. As a former workmate used to say; "Ah sure, we're a harmless race o' people".

Right now I am somewhat confined to the house and have heard Joe Duffy
for the past 2 days - he is great at hinting but never stating. On this
MDM saga it seems that the woman at the centre is somehow related to
the woman who co-wrote the book by Mr. Coleman, whom he claims he
never met. The Mail on Sunday had a 2 page spread about it.
