This is the story of an unknown parish priest; the spiritual testimony of a man who wants his parishioners to see through him to God. The more he is invisible, the more the light of Christ will shine through.

As you read these reflections and homilies of Fr Boswell you have a growing sense of the presence of God. You also encounter an extraordinary mind that brings new insight into the Faith from unexpected quarters. You learn about the life of a saint from an anecdote of how Fr Boswell gate-crashed a canonisation ceremony. You are introduced to new evidence for the site of Our Lady’s Dormition. You think again about clouds, thorns and church pews.

The book is a labour of love undertaken by the parish of Our Lady of Light church, Long Crendon. It speaks to those who were served by him for over 40 years. The photographs reflect the beauty of a church inspired by the Holy Spirit, and built by Father Boswell and devoted parishioners. ‘The song of angels’, in his words, can be heard behind its rich symbolism.

The book also speaks to those beyond the parish boundaries. They will encounter a man whom they never knew but who writes with a palpable love for Christ.

To read this book is a privilege for which I am deeply grateful. Father Boswell is a real man of God. I can see the book making a deep impression. It gives a picture of the Catholic priesthood at its best and most attractive. Philip Trower, author of Turmoil and Truth
