The seminar arranged by Cardinal Vincent for the contemplative religious of the diocese was held last Thursday, 9th. It was a very happy gathering of Benedictines from Tyburn, Poor Clares from Arkley, Carmelites from Ware and ourselves. The Cardinal gave an inspiring opening address, based on Vultum Dei Quaerere, and Sr Francisca PC touched on various aspects of the document. There were lively conversations over meals and the Cardinal, in saying goodbye, said how much he had enjoyed sharing in our fun.
Now we are settling down to a quieter Lent, happy in the knowledge that our preparations for the event mean that most of the spring cleaning is already done.
