Do Vicars Work Hard?


This one does. He (or possibly she - I have no idea) has this village church as one of several in his cure. The people don't turn out, and those who do don't give much. But there he is, week after week. And when he's not there, they say the Office. They record the fact that the service has taken place and what the vicar has preached on.

There is a heroic virtue being acted out here.
