On retreat

I know I shouldn't contact the world while on retreat but here in Ars the light it so wonderful and the presence of the Curé so close that I could not resist. 

Back to prayer ... Shhhhhhh.

At the top of the Empire State building we woz photobombed.

I'm afraid that I did not really know what 'photobombed' was, but the nice man who took our picture then took one of himself, and shouted to a fellow co-worker chappie at the other side "I've just photobombed two priests!"

I think he should be in the picture to photobomb! But never mind. Forever he is on the internet, and more specifically on this blog...

So perhaps I've photobombed him!

Bye bye New York


I'm afraid in this city that never sleeps, I did. But I always awoke with excitement in my heart and a spring in my step. 

Some places

will always be empty.

My view while in New York

He is looking down on me even here! There is a great buzz in New York for the Pope. I hope he has a nice time. 

The Americans like celebrities. I was almost knocked from my feet because someone was arriving at a shop. It turned out to be a woman called Kim
Kardashian. She is famous. She was one of the answers on Pointless. 

More beer wisdom

St Mary's Hexham

St Mary's before the redecoration
As a chaplain I do not exist geographically. I live in the parish of St Mary in Hexham (parish website here). The Parish Priest has just had the Church redecorated. It is magnificent. Quite magnificent.
