Road Trip Prep

photo by Randy, OHC
We can't leave for Holy Cross until Betsy is finished with a Tutorial that she is responsible for. So I'm having a relatively (for vacation/retreat time) busy morning packing and getting the house ready for us to be gone for a few days. Besides packing clothes and the usual sundries, we are bring a full kit of electronic gadgets. I want to get some images of Holy Cross. So I'm bringing what I need to record video, audio, and stills. I'm even hoping to do a taped interview with Bede.

Already my mind is at West Park. I'm really, really looking forward to settling into the rhythms of life there. It will only be a couple of days--but I plan on getting as deep into retreat time as I can. I'm especially looking forward to praying the Offices. And getting into that non-hurried head space that is possible there.

I miss living there, as I have done for various lengths of time in my life. I'm sure I'll have a chance to do that again some day.

Note: the photo above was taken by Br. Randy, OHC. If you want to see more of his photos look at his Flickr Albums.

Hello Tay. Thanks for this picture! I was in OHC for 15 years. And was ordained deacon and priest at that altar. Nice to see it again, with that sun flowing in!

I now live in CA, and alas can't go to Mount Calvary any more. (I was Prior there in the late 70s)

I was ordained in the Canadian Church by Bp. Stiff while in OHC.

Blessings!

Thanks, Brian, but I didn't take the photo, Randy, OHC, did. I'll make a note in the post so people know.

Yeah, I discerned my call to the priesthood on that rug in front of that altar. It's also where I had my first Mass. Douglas, OHC, now on to his reward, was my deacon.
