Wedding Garment (Matthew chapter 22 verses 11 and 12)

I was fortunate to meet Brother Ramon a couple of times before I got married, in fact I spent some days on retreat at Glasshampton, the Anglican Society of Saint Francis monastery over near Gloucester just days before I got married.

He was such a man...and his spirituality was transforming and indeed he radiated the light of Christ within him. He was a wonderful man, and it was a sadness to discover that after many years, when I decided to get back in touch with him, he had died a few months before of cancer.

It is a blessing to know other people, even ordinary Christians who would not think highly of themselves, but who have a savour of Christ about them, I mean in their manner of life, their gentleness and kindness, their humility and sense of their own unworthiness.

I hope that one day the same might be true in some small measure of me as well.
