Fr Hugh’s Homily for 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

On a trip to London I went off to the National Maritime Museum to see an exhibition of Canaletto’s paintings, but while I was there spent a bit of time in the main museum and as ever wandered into the shop, and bought a book there on Sextants (used for navigation in the old days) and about maritime, sea, exploration.  Sometimes by chance you pick up a great book  just to fill in the time while you are having a coffee.  At the end of the book there is a quote from John Ruskin, who used to live by Coniston in the 19th century.  This is what he said about travelling:

“All travel becomes boring in exact relationship to its speed.  Going by railroad I do not consider travelling at all; it is merely ‘being sent’ to a place, and very little different from being a parcel…But if, going forward…slowly, after some days we approach some interesting scenery this is one of the most exquisite enjoyments possible to a healthy mind, and real knowledge is acquired here regardless of the purpose of travel, getting a true sense of the space we are passing through, a true sense of our world and its breadth.”…..
