26Apr The Inspiration of a Cowslip

Seamus Ahearne casts a cold eye on 'The present day chaos of bureaucracy (that) almost drowns our souls.'; 'the great competition going on between the ‘essential’ aspects of life and the nonsense of paperwork or meetings to protect our backs.' 
Seamus asks of our celebration of Eucharist 'Do we find it prayerful ourselves (as priests)?
Of the political he says "The Government gets strangled by stray issues. ...  So much of it is an avoidance of the real problems."
But then the sight of a "little cowslip. It stops me. And I gasp.  What stops other people? ... I think our job ... is to open eyes, hearts, imaginations and then to help each other, see. Then real worship will follow. Then the Scriptures will come alive. Then Communion will happen. Then our faith will be confirmed."
