Where are you going next year Father?

As many of you know, I've been involved with leading pilgrimages for almost twenty years. This year's - to the Holy Land - was one of, if not the best ever. But what about next year? Well, Billy and Rita, the organizers, have been working hard over the last weeks to put something together. Actually it was Billy who came up with our current proposal. It's not an obvious destination, and is not as ambitious as the Holy Land. But it does have its attractions - and not only for the soul either! There's a shrine connected with Our Lord, and another one that's very "in" at the moment. And we will have to face a rather cheeky little child. Confused? Well, you'll just have to wait and see...
Meanwhile, here is one of my favourite things in the Holy Land - an icon of St Peter weeping after he denied Our Lord. It's from the church of St Peter in Gallicantu (St Peter at the Cock-crow) built on the site where it happened. Again, thanks to Paul for the pic - click on it to enlarge it.
