Renewal of vows

From Mr N. J. Inkley

Sir, — While correspondence continues about the specific organisation of chrism masses (Letters, 17 April and 24 April), I continue to be unconvinced about the whole process of renewing vows of ordination, confirmation, matrimony, etc.

Fair enough to be reminded of them, but it seems, in all logic, that the re-making of them devalues a lifetime commitment of gravitas into something akin to an annual contract.
