What You Say About Us
Thank you so much for my stay … it surpassed all my expectations – the love, the peace, the comfort, the company …
As always, I have been carried by your prayer … and by all the little signs of kindness during my time here. The knowledge that you are here, a still centre in the midst of so much busy-ness, sustains me through the year … A heartfelt “thank you”
Here in the silence and the song
We are held
In the sacred ritual
And quiet corridors
Amidst the trees
And beside the stillness of the pond
God is revealed …
Thank you once again for what I experienced as an outstanding weekend … Such a banquet for minds and hearts . . .
The way that scripture and the rule have been woven together – always open to the specific application in the lives of each one of us – was so helpful.
Thank you so much for a great weekend. It was wonderful to be in Turvey and it was very interesting to learn about the Our Father prayer from the different perspectives and in relation to St Benedict’s Rule brought to life with your personal insight! I have learned a great deal from this weekend … It was also very good to be with the other Oblates and to be able to join in the Offices.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful weekend and the blessed depth of all you gave us. I left Turvey on Sunday feeling rebalanced: and my heart rewarmed and no longer “numb within me”
