Here are photos of the Fathers relaxing, eating and one of them listening to a talk in the hall. Also a photo of the procession out of the chapel. Thanks to Leo Darroch for the pictures.
I loved the daily routine of last week. In the combox Fr Elkin has written interestingly about life as he knew it at Ushaw in the 50`s. I enjoyed having sung Lauds and Vespers every day and a sung daily Mass. My enthusiasm for the religious life which has lain dormant since I left the novitiate of the Discalced Carmelites in 1983 came back to life! I remember at the time wondering whether I shouldn`t be a Benedictine rather than a Carmelite. Too late to worry about it now. Here are the pictures.
