A memorable evening at The Keys...

...the Catholic Writers' Guild. Mass and dinner at St Mary Moorfields. Master of the Guild, Mary Kenny, gave her valedictory speech, telling tales of 1960s Fleet Street and pondering on playwriting,people,politics and popularity, with some thoughts on journalistic ethics and the craziness of filing-the-story-on-time in the days before email. It was a splendid evening, well worthy of the great traditions of The Keys. Mass before was celebrated by our chaplain Fr Peter Newby. In the sermon he commented on the perils of being assailed by people who become obsessive on one particular topic, a tendency to which religious-types can too easily become attached. I have written on this subject .
