10th October

Got a wonderful night’s sleep last night and woke up this morning at 10.45am! Had the first experience of injecting myself with a needle – nothing to it after the first time. Maureen had a heart-warming lunch of bacon and cabbage. Afterwards I posed with some of the Reillys for a photo: nephew Jason, sister Maureen, myself and brother-in-law John with his grandson Mikey Brown.

One Saturday theme for the Saturday liturgy is Our Lady. Pope Benedict XVI said once “Mary is a woman of hope: only because she believes in God’s promises…” (DCE41) What this might means for OUR trusting in God’s promises is expressed in this pearl of wisdom of St Teresa of Avila.
