We had a visitor from France today who said that she always looks forward to finding out what I’ve been doing during a blogging hiatus. This time, it’s not very exciting: I spent the first half moving around and the second half lying still. A series of Province-related meetings in Ireland was followed by a spell in bed, not through meeting-sickness but because of the return of whatever it was that I had earlier. This cold/hot/cold weather we’ve been having probably doesn’t help.
In the meantime, there has been the death of Father Conleth, the oldest member of our Province (aged 92) who was buried today at Crossgar, and the death of Mrs Gallagher (mother of Father Dermot cp and Brother Brendan cp) whose Funeral Mass will be celebrated here on Monday at 12.15.
Tomorrow we will welcome Father Denis Travers, our First General Consultor, who arrives to make General Visitation at Saint Mungo’s until Thursday, and members of our Charism Task Force who will be meeting here this week.
