ViaFrancigenalogo
On March 19th, Paul Castley MSC set out on the Via Francigena pilgrimage from Canterbury to Rome, intending to walk into St Peter's Square on 29th June, the feast of Sts Peter and Paul, the 50th anniversary of his ordination.

Pilgrimages do not always work out as imagined, but Paul has sent messages about happenings along the way.

This is the first part of a mini-diary of messages he has sent.

At Rheims. Cheating a bit but doing some hard slog and meeting generous people. The war graves are sad especially the German ones. Rheims cathedral.  Great place to pray in.

Novitiate Students

From the MSC South Africa website.

Nestling under the majestic Drakensberg mountains lies Holy Family Care Centre; a little oasis for suffering and neglected children, run by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.

In 2001 the OLSH Sisters took charge of the property and opened up a Care Centre for people with HIV/Aids and for orphans. Today there are over 70 children in residence.  Many come here, little bundles of suffering and broken humanity, but with proper nourishment and care and lots of love a new life emerges.
