I was having my first child in Cavan General many years ago and I had no idea what was ahead. I was feeling quite nervous and anxious. I had never been in hospital before.  The Chaplain arrived and prayed with me. I felt totally relaxed and safe afterwards. It was a wonderful feeling and I remember it to this day. Two other priests had a particular influence on me in my teenage years because they gave very thought provoking homilies.
