An excellent day... the Kairos Centre in Roehampton, where Aid to the Church in Need was holding a conference for all its local diocesan representatives. Mass in the beautiful chapel: there is a magnificent stained glass above the altar, showing Mary Magdalene at the foot of the Cross. Talks and discussions on aspects of ACN's work - a new edition of its report Persecuted and Forgotten is due out soon. And a highlight: guest speaker Rev Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Informative, upbeat, vigourous, and he answered questioon after question without flagging and with interest and enthusiasm.

A cheerful talkative supper - with pancakes as it was Shrove Tuesday. The kind team working in the kitchen wrapped some up for me with lemon wedges, to take home for Jamie.
