Today I managed to get over to Wickenden Manor for the Opus Dei Day of Recollection for clergy. As I have mentioned before, these days always offer good spiritual food for meditation and good (wholesome but not extravagant) food for the body and a chance to make new friends among priests from various dioceses and catch up with old friends. There is time for quiet prayer, the opportunity for confession and, in the afternoon, Rosary and Benediction.
I'm hoping to go to the next one which is on Wednesday 12 December. The day starts at 11am and finishes at about 4pm. Wickenden Manor is near East Grinstead and not far from junction 10 of the M23. If any priest is interested in coming along, feel free to email me or to leave a "not for publication" comment. (For priests 'oop North, there are days of recollection at Thorneycroft Hall near Macclesfield, Cheshire.)
Many thanks to the priests of Opus Dei for their friendship, generosity and good example.
