I am sitting in the garden in the sun with a coffee and a glass of juice. My sweet smelling clothes are next to me on the line. I was tired yesterday. I slept 11 hours solid. Wonderful to have a rest day. Just an hour and a half’s walk to the supermarket to stock up. An afternoon and evening of resting and reading. Perhaps a film this evening.
Just before I left Caldey, Fr Gildas told me to.pop into St Marys in Tenby as there is a carved scallop shell marking where pilgrims to Santiago prayed Mercy before embarking on the ships that took the empties back. I couldn’t find it and the Wardens didn’t know about it. I have though found a cheap bottle of Ribeiro that i will open to toast them with in a few minutes.
I am thinking a lot about Jesus’ teaching on not worrying, and also about Paul’s reflections on dying and rising with Christ that came up a lot in the Offices on Caldey. Lots of connections to tease out between this, pilgrimage, discipleship and estates ministry.
I saw a couple of choughs this morning.
The plan next is to walk to St Davids over a couple of days. Prayers for you there.
