It was my privilige and honour to know Bishop Mote and on one occasion to say Mass for him.

My most vivid remembrance of him was at a diocesean synod where I ask him for a few minutes of his time. I told him that I was concerned about my anger which would at times boil up so much that I feared it was a sin.

He asked me what I was so angry about and I told him. He didn't even take a moment of reflection before replying, "You should be angry about such things!"

I really liked this guy.

May he rest in peace.
