We met at the Calvary hospice where I worked then again at the university where we were studying. Each Thursday I would discuss their ethical subject of that morning from a non-Catholic female viewpoint while they provided me with a vegetarian lunch on the lawn

Contraception, abortion, couple relationships and many more topics were discussed at length. Their lecturer in theology studies was another priest and what would he know about such topics?

The year was ending and we all about to graduate so they invited me for the most romantic picnic. Two RC priests and a couple of women.

They had meat and drink

while I basked and feasted well

on companionship
