Today, as I worked away at my computer there, I had the unmistakable sense that someone was looking at me, and when I looked up, there was an enormous cow craning over the gate. As I usually do when they come to call, I went out to say hello and was...

As I went into Mass, the words of the song 'Three Lions' which is often sung by English football fans echoed in my head: 'it's coming home, it's coming home...'. But as I sat in church waiting for Mass to begin, I remembered how for many months...
