Today I had two parochial meetings. And was at the Rectory in the study for what was left of the day.
As I spoke with two who will venture out sealing over the next few days. For those who live here in this part of world sealing is a part of our lives, though not respected by all. Our fishermen of old always respected the sea – and some had a great fear of the sea as well. Both at fishing and sealing many of our fishers have returned maimed for life — while others never returned.
Respect for those who do their best to provide and make and honest living should be honoured by all.
