Days of Recollection

I had to rush a little bit to get away today after our Year 6 School Mass to get over to Wickenden Manor for the Opus Dei Day of Recollection for clergy. I was glad that I did, though; it was an oasis of calm with sound content, good liturgy and good company.

Later, in the parish, we had an Evening of Recollection for Men along the lines of the Opus Dei evenings. Spiritual Conference (on prayer), Confessions (during which there was a talk by a layman) Spiritual Conference (on the Passion of Christ), Benediction, and Marian Anthem.

When all was finished, we went to the bar for a beer or two, some good conversation and the excitement of the shoot-out between Roma and the Arsenal.
