In the second reading, from 2 Corinthians, St Paul tells us
It is when I am weak that I am strong
There are similar contradictions in our song at the Preparation of the Gifts:
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, In giving to all men that we receive, And in dying that we are born to eternal life.
The choir was directed today by Sabine von Hünerbein, while yours truly had the first of two weekends off. The glowing tributes that ensued reassured me that I should get away more often.
