Off for a few days with fellow Spiritual Directors to look at the dynamics of St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises. It will be great to be back at St Beuno’s in North Wales where I made the Full Exercises back in 2012. How time flies.
“I would add, however, that reducing the language of our sacred rites to the equivalent of a spoonful of pureed carrots and “Here comes the choochoo!” played a decisive role – not exclusive – in the constant drift of people out of our churches, men into anything but our seminaries, and respect for the Church in the public square down the drain.”– Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
