Who was - or is - your favourite teacher? Who is the one you would most like to thank? Teachers have had a hard job during the last few months and deserve our thanks. It is particularly difficult to be a teacher teaching hard lessons - or hard truths. We consider Jesus and St Paul as teachers, and how they still managed to teach about the comfort and hope that faith in God can give - even in the most difficult experiences of life.
