Benedictines

Amazing really – but just the sort of extraordinary thing that Ireland produces – a brand new Benedictine monastery in the Irish countryside near Rostrevor.  If you want to find out a bit more of the story, it’s here

I went on retreat there last week – more tomorrow

    It looks lovely. Were you able to receive communion?

    Yes – I asked rather tentatively. The answer was Yes – although one might wish to abstain occasionally in recognition of the underlying issues. And it would also be different if I was ‘in role’ rather than there on retreat as a private citizen. I thought that was very fair and welcome – better than just behaving as if the rules did not exist.
