Message from Fr Mark

It is just over a week now since the death of Prince Philip was announced and his funeral is this weekend.  Tributes have flowed since the announcement of his passing and many hours of television coverage have been given to his extraordinary life.  We all know the stories of his ‘gaffes’ and often blunt and at times insensitive comments, but the thing that has come through the most in what I have seen and read is what can be summarised as his ‘life of service.’  Even some of our most cynical commentators in the media, both on radio and in print have acknowledged this life of unselfish dedicated and committed service.  In so many ways it seems to me that Prince Philip was a person who wanted a better world for so many, especially the young with his great work with the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.  He was a person deeply committed to the care of the environment and to nature.  Perhaps the reason he has captured so much comment in this past week is that he was really so different.  He stood out as a person of unselfish service in a world too tainted with too many living lives that are selfish, self-seeking, self-serving, self-interested.  And the trouble is these are the folk that all too often are the ones in position of power and influence in so many walks of life like politics and big business, and the finance sector.  I wonder if in fact Prince Philip indeed has shown us all that there is another and better way to live.  Just a thought.
