|Exposition during our Passion-tide Retreat|
The retreat was rigorous, in the sense of lots of things happening, challenging but also tiring. I mean plenty of time for prayer, intelligent but accessible conferences by Fr Stephen, beautiful and very carefully crafted devotional exercises by Br Gregory and a good turn out by our parishioners. The red light outside of the confessional was on practically all of the time.

And on top of all that we have a new bishop, who at the very least has a fear of God and believes that prayer is important.
