La Horquetta parish priest Fr Dwight Merrick reflects on the meaning of missionary discipleship. October was declared by Pope Francis the Church’s Extraordinary Missionary Month.
Somewhere around 1998, the Fraternity of Priests, an international organisation with a chapter here in T&T, held our annual retreat with Fr Thomas ‘Tom’ Forrest CSsR our retreat master.
He arrived a bit under the weather with 50 prepared talks which he carried everywhere with an aim to deliver as many of them as he could manage. There would be no after-lunch siesta as we were accustomed to and it would be business all week if we let him have his way.
