Scotland... rain and drizzle, slowly turning to snow...the journey from Euston was interrupted at Carlisle, where we had to transfer to a bus - the railway viaduct /bridhe unusable because of the floods.

Sisters Roseanne and Andrea of the Sisters of the Gospel of Life  met me at Glasgow and it has been a joy staying with them. A warm welcome, delicious meals, evening prayer in their small candelit chapel, lots of good talk, a comfortable room with wonderful books...

At a morning Mass in a rather chilly church, the preacher recalled his auntie praying in that same church a while back :"She sort of looked a bit odd, and then I realised it was because she'd a hot water bottle tucked up her back".

The FAITH editorial board meeting was excellent, useful and productive. The cake (see previous blog entry) went down well.
