Wedding in New York State
Been away from the blogosphere for a little while -entertaining the good Fr. John, who is now safely back in England and then travelling to the Finger Lakes area in New York state for a wedding. Fr. John's visit was a great joy, discussing the different issues in the Church in England and the USA. I think he left with a slightly rosy picture of life here - but he had a good rest! My quick visit to New York state for the wedding was a delight - I stayed in the beautiful town of Skeneatles, which has the second cleanest lake in the USA. It really is a most beautiful area and the lake is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The water is crystal clear and drinkable, which is pretty rare these days. Now I am rushing to get ready for the annual gathering of the priests of the diocese. I pick up our speaker, Fr. Jay Scott Newman tomorrow and he will speak to our gathering on Beauty, the Liturgy and Parish renewal. Pray for our meeting!
