Now you can all see where I am. This is the Retreat Centre at Lismullin. I'm surrounded by beautiful, peaceful countryside near the hill of Tara.
“We cannot bring to the world the Good News, which is Christ himself in person, if we ourselves are not deeply united with Christ, if we do not know him profoundly, personally, if we do not live by his Word”. Pope Benedict XVI, after his own retreat, 11 March 2006
My simple bedroom at the Lismullin Centre where, so far, I've woken up to sunshine and birds singing.
