The priest stopped half way through the wedding Mass as if the irony of it all had hit him just then for the first time. "Isn't it strange", he said, "that a man who was never married is telling all of you how it should be done."

And he got a fit of laughing. So too did everyone else in the church - but there was hardly anyone there in St Mary's who agreed with him.

For all of us present were very much in agreement that the singleton Father Pat Moore had just delivered a masterclass on marriage.
