(The above is a photo of a postcard I found at the back of the church in Schwarzenfeld; I haven’t branched out into aerial photography yet.)
I returned on Sunday evening from a visit to Holy Trinity Retreat, Schwarzenfeld, in the Vice-Province of the Five Wounds (Bavaria and Austria). I had gone there on the previous Monday with Father Patrick and Gareth, our student, to give a short course on Saint Paul of the Cross to those in formation. After a cheap and punctual Easy Jet direct flight from Edinburgh, we were met at the airport by Father Gregor, the Provincial, seen here packing our bags in a most scientific manner.
Below is what we saw when we arrived. A fuller photographic report will have to wait until later, as I am leaving for Rome tomorrow morning for a meeting about the Passionist preparations for the World Youth Day.
In the meantime, someone in the Vice-Province launched a new German Passionist Blog (called Passio-Blog) last Sunday; you can find it on the sidebar under Sites of Passionist Interest.
