English Priest

This is a picture of a very English priest outside Westminster Cathedral in London.

I don’t know Fr.Whinder, but he looks pleasantly bookish and trad. He keeps popping up in the blogosphere, and I think it might be amusing to know how far and wide the picture has already gone, and how much further we can get it. Joee Blogs in London took the snap and is delighted whenever he sees it float to the surface in the blogosphere.

Let me know where else you’ve seen him, and link me to your own posting.

    Hallo Father,Fr. Whinder is certainly turning out to be a bit of a legend – and all without any effort on his own part. Like you, I saw the photo in your post. My take on his latest appearance(s) is here.AND, his name has even become a verb! Well, on my blog anyway…to whinder: a noun becomes a verbBTW: Congratulations on your ordination. I remember with fondness your radio programme on Premier Radio a while ago. With prayers for your ministry,Malcolm

    If you blog, post Fr Whinder’s photo. Let’s see where he ends up.

    If you blog, post Fr Whinder’s photo. Let’s see where he ends up.– now that’s hardly fair when you’ve never spoken to, nor met someone, nor read a word by them….though by all accounts, he sounds like a very cool Priest.

    I don’t get it.

    I’m assured by a guy who knows him well that Fr Whinder is v. cool and doesn’t mind his picture doing the rounds. Apparently he is a superb priest.

    Could it be… that if his glasses were a bit darker he begins to look like an older HP?Just asking.
