    Steaming salvation
     
    The longest, toughest day for a while began and ended in steam. Began badly, taking my dying car, engine smoking all over the road, to the garage to face expensive treatment. Ended well, twelve hours later, in a gentle Ignatian group exercise.

    Which had been preceded by the most welcome and unexpected gesture of the day: someone coming into my 'vesty hour' (where I take bookings for baptisms etc) with a wonderfully welcome chinese chicken and rice meal to sustain me. Felt like a sort of steaming salvation.
