After having done our usual morning duties we received the good news of the gift to go for a walk on the mountainside of the Lake District guided by Fr Philip and his inseparable dog, Bosco.
We started our walk in a beautiful place in the middle of rocks that are used for slate and with ice “waterfalls” around; going uphill we lived a moment of sharing and of prayer, reciting the Holy Rosary. The mist and the snow made our walk harder but the stop for lunch with hot tea and the precious compass of Fr Philip enabled us to return on the right path.
The surprise hadn’t finished as we were then welcomed by a family, friends and benefactors of our Fraternity. When we reached the farm where they live we celebrated Holy Mass in a very tiny chapel next to the main house. What really struck us is the faith of this family, testified by this corner of the house dedicated to God. Three generations of farmers welcomed us for dinner and what touched us again is the interest that they have in our lives, in our history and in the testimonies of our journey: also here the charisma of our Community reached the place.
Thank you to the Community for this gift and especially to Fr Philip for his availability and for staying so close to us.
We want to entrust to Our Lady all those people who support us and pray for us.
