Pilgrims' End

Monday, August 29, 2011
After showers and final packing we set off for London. Despite the long journey ahead the coach's air conditioning certainly made the hours fly by. We made very good time until we left the the ferry at Dover but the Father Ted DVDs took some of the sting out of the slow journey to North London. We arrived at St. Dominic's and made our way to the Lady Chapel to celebrate Mass for the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. In his homily, Brother Lawrence pondered the distinction between Mary's Assumption and her Coronation. He pointed out that likewise the journey to God does not end with the end of a pilgrimage but continues and only takes us to new heights.

Get set for Rio in 2013!
