On a very stormy day, in front of a beautiful view across Morcambe Bay, we gathered for a peaceful day together. We had a moment of welcoming followed by the introduction of the parents of the Guys in Community, or who have been in Community, and Bruno told everyone that he was going to leave and Paolo introduced himself as the new Responsible.
Fr Michael celebrated a beautiful Holy Mass during which he spoke about St Peter and the twelve apostles showing how they represent all the different kinds of people, each with their own poverties, that we can find in the world. He explained that although St Peter’s denied Jesus he nevertheless repented and came back to him and this is the case with the Guys here in Cenacolo.
During lunch we had the opportunity to listen to Bryan Ingleby’s incredible story about the beginning of the UK Cenacolo, and then after praying the glorious mysteries of the rosary we watched a video of Mother Elvira speaking to the Guys back stage of the Recital. We were all impressed by her powerful words.
