Wednesday, the 3rd

Today, on our final morning at Glendalough, we had a last opportunity for a walk – short or long – during which we met (or not), sheep, goats, deer and other surprises along the way.  We were delighted that much wildlife is visible in the area. After lunch, we returned to Manresa by car (except for Barnabas who cycled home!), with the feeling of “home sweet home” after a long and intense pilgrimage.

We concluded with evening Mass, celebrating the memory of a Jesuit saint, Francis Borgia.  As our presider, Jozef, pointed out, for this great saint, nothing really mattered except the knowledge of Christ as our only true treasure.

And we were happy to see Joe again, not to mention Tommy – and his wonderful home cooking … even if Elias is still missing!
