During the remaining weeks of the year Fr. Martindale will describe in homely verse the character, atmosphere and special meaning of a few of his favourite churches.
As every true parishioner knows, no two churches are quite the same. You can say a certain kind of prayer in one church, but you want to say a different one in another. One evokes certain sentiments, another quite different associations.
The parish church should be the centre of our spiritual lives as they used to be the centre of all Christian life, religious and secular.
In modern Catholic history they have been neglected. Fr. Martindale will show how a parish has its own spirit by his verses, typical of a few he knows best.
