 The  Right Reverend Tom Williams, Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool - Told his story from his schooldays as a useless pupil "you will never attain anything " he was told. His need to find God lead him to encounter those in need especially through his hospital chaplaincy comforting the sick, the dying and their loved ones and becoming a prelate of the church. Useless? Each one is gifted with our talents from Our Lord.

No one is useless in the eyes of Our Lord.
