Read to the bottom of the blog to see if you can help!

Another day along our Via Dolorosa with the 5th station - Simon of Cyrene carries the cross of Jesus.  This is definitely one of the most challenging and moving of stations.  Simon is compelled to help.  A visitor from another country, was he pulled out of the crowd because he looked different?  Whatever happened, it must have had a significant effect on him.  He must have hung around and spoken with the followers of Jesus.  Otherwise, had he slunk off into the crowd after his actions, we would never have known his name.  Yet, here it is recorded is the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke.  I wonder what his story was.  

The Overwhelm team were getting the gear ready for Saturday's Mass at OLA near Belle Vale and lots of others helped in the moving of the gear from the Chapel to the minibus.  I'll report back next week.

This afternoon, I was given the opportunity to talk about Sacred Time with some of our new trainee teachers who were fantastic.  I came across this video when I was thinking about the session - hope you enjoy.  (3 mins 32 secs)

A great day but I need help solving a mystery.  At one point in the morning, I heard someone walking along the corridor singing a hymn with great gusto "Let the Spirit come down!"  Would love to know who that was.  They sounded fantastic!  Any info, pass it along so I can thank them!
