Last day at Lismullin

Here are a few more photos taken during my recent retreat
at the Lismullin Conference Centre in Co. Meath.


Another photo of the splendid oratory.

A closer view of the tabernacle which depicts the four evangelists from the famous Book of Kells.

As I said goodbye to Lismullin I gave thanks to God for this opportunity to withdraw from the world for a few days; from the hectic pace and demands of parish life to focus on my priesthood and prayer and to examine my daily life.
I would recommend this practice to everyone. It is a marvellous thing to be able to take time away from our busy day to day lives, even just for a short time. There are days of retreat and residential retreats for both men and women at Wickenden Manor amongst many other retreat centres both locally and further afield.

Thank you for sharing this with us Father, it has certainly 'whetted my appetite' and made me more determined to make a retreat myself in the not too distant future
