Just had what must be my longest blog-break ever. I’ll gradually work back through four days of Benedictine Retreat followed by a diocesan visit to Meath and Kildare in the Church of Ireland – where we are attempting to re-establish a faltering link.

Here is the group imbibing a little cultural diversity at Dublin Airport.


  1. There is a pub here in Texas that has a drink that is part (mostly) Guinness and part something else (I forget what) that is called a “priest’s collar” which makes me wonder if that is a drink named for a bishop’s miter.

  2. Doesn’t it say in the Bible that a little wine is good for the stomach. Maybe a new translation has ‘Guinness is good for you, to be sure, to be sure 🙂
