Today I learnt that I had passed my Philosophy studies. These are the first part of the academic training required for me to be ordained. Happy Days. The thesis was entitled “Is Pleasure a genuine element of the Human Good? A New Natural Law Perspective comparing the authors John Finnis and Timothy Chappell.” (quick answer: I think so). As with many studies – it often feels like one is just scraping the surface and I would love to spend more time reading about it. I did enjoy the thesis component. I must thank my supervisor, Dr Patrick Riordan SJ, tutors, Drs Louis Caruana SJ, Peter Gallagher SJ and Elizabeth Burns, my Jesuit community in Stamford Hill – especially Dr Tony Carroll SJ – but all of whom offered help and encouragement that kept me sane – and the staff at Heythrop College, University of London.
