Day three: a quieter day in Carfin. Today we set about our duties seamlessly like we’d been doing this for years. Martin led us in the 10am Parish Mass which was a a lot calmer than yesterday’s masses in Glasgow. As the day went on I moved round on rotation to the prayer writing section where my day’s SOJ (source of joy) happened: a brother and sister came up to me saying they liked the picture on the boards, but they thought there was a lot of writing, so we decided to draw some prayers instead.
That, to me, is what the pilgrimage is about: allowing young people to find their faith in an easy, relative way. Two amazing young people, who came to say goodbye to me at the end of the day. To close the day, Bishop Devine came and led mass, which was an experience in itself…for a older man he can’t half talk fast! We then said our goodbyes to Scotland, moving on to Savio in Bollington and tomorrow to the land of scouse, LIVERPOOL.
