Dear Editor: Congratulations and many thanks for the Priests’ Jubilees which you published in The Tablet (May 21).
I was a member of the Professional Church Singers Guild for many years and had opportunity to sing in many churches in our diocese, and to meet so many of our dedicated priests. It was such a joy to remember so many of them as I read the articles. Some would request specific music – some would go out of their way at the end of Mass to express appreciation – some, whom I knew well, would chat about former times we shared.
You could never miss the fact that these were great men who served their parishes, their people and our diocese as witnesses to the love that God has for us.
Wishing them many blessings.
JOHN J. MCCORMICK
