Some people like to look spiritual but they are not; Pope Francis calls this “the spirituality of appearances”. Cathedral Administrator, Vicar General Fr Martin Sirju told members of Towers of Strength Community (ToS) that on the contrary, they must be examples of “genuine spiritual life”. The Pope’s comment was contained in a letter to clergy for the August 4 Feast of St John Vianney, the patron saint of priests.
Fr Sirju was presiding at Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception to celebrate the community’s silver anniversary, with Fr David Khan, spiritual director concelebrating.
