Glasgow's loss, Lothian's gain

Fr Paul Francis CP (shown on the right of this picture) with one of his brethren

Bad news. Fr Paul Francis of Laus Crucis is moving in December to Prestonpans. This is very sad for those of us who have come to love this lovely, gentle, scholarly priest (who I am sure winces and prays for me when he reads my graceless rants).

I want to thank him for all he has done for me: as a good priest, an honest preacher of God's Word and a gentle and wise confessor.

Pray for him that the Lord will be with him in all he does and especially in his new apostolate.

Our Lady of Sorrows - pray for him.
St Paul of the Cross - pray for him.
St Charles of Mount Argus - pray for him.

no no no. GOOD news:-) He's a watering can entering the spiritual desert of St A's and E.

Methinks I need to move from West Lothian to East Lothian! :)

Just about as far away from this end of the diocese as you can get, but a welcome 'signing' none the less.:)

I remember Fr. James Quinn SJ (resident in St.A's &E) used to explain that he was 'a missionary' from the West. Sounds like your man's the same, Paulinus. Poor you, though, losing a top priest.
