November 21 Manziana

It's 4.30pm and I've just got back from a walk.  It was a lovely sunny afternoon,  but it starts to get cold about 4pm so it's good to be home. I didn't walk anywhere in particular except to the post office which was closed. I have a couple of post cards for Scotland and Spain (the brothers in Burgos)  which I've had for ages and now which I still have.

This week we've been looking at 'Choices of the heart ' with another English sister who works in therapy, spiritual direction and lectures on human development in a seminary. She was excellent, very gentle,  just lead us gently from a chair with a Page of notes she had in front of her. There was some good sharing from the brothers which could have gone on and still might amongst ourselves. I'm giving a session on my music with interested people on Sunday. 

Well I might have a shower and do a bit of reading.... As you know I usually find other things to do besides reading.  Today at mass it was the UN'' children's day which we prayed about. Gospel was the tough one about.... Whoever leads children astray etc so I gave the prayer group the hymn of healing which we're using tonight at evening prayer. God bless.
