two fat ladies

“God if you are up there, please do something, I just can’t go on” CDW

Clarissa Dickson Wright died this week. She was well known as one of TV’s cooking show Two Fat Ladies, and she, along with her co-star Jennifer Paterson were proud to be Catholic.

If you don’t know of their TV show you might find this brief introduction helpful:

And here is a great St. Paul’s London “Mind of the Maker” interview with Clarissa. It is inspiring to hear her reflect on her life and her faith with honesty and insight.

And since it was cut out of the interview, here is “Dear Lord and Father of Mankind”

and the second of her choices, George Herbert’s “Love Bade me Welcome”
