Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Back from España!

We're back from a most amazing week in Salamanca and its environs and I've almost a thousand photos to sort through, but here are two to begin with: Br Paul Mills OP and me outside our Dominican convent in Caleruega, birthplace of St Dominic and home of the holy Guzman family; and the wonderful Priory and Church of San Esteban in Salamanca where we were guests of the Dominican community of Sotomayor. The hospitality was superb, even though our Spanish was almost non-existent (!), the food (and wine) was excellent and the weather was perfect!

I'll post more photos over the next few days although Br Paul and I shall be in our Dominican sisters' convent at Stone this weekend for a Youth 2000 Prayer Retreat... but more stories and sights from our pilgrimage to Spain is forthcoming!

I can't wait to see more photos! So awesome! I wish I could go to Spain!

And I'll say a prayer for your Youth 2000.
