About John Lilburne

This afternoon I Miranda, in her wheelchair, to a Christian group. There was a good talk about stress management and meditation. This was followed by a "Walk to Emmaus" exercise, where groups of two walked around the grounds talking.

After that there was Mass. I went into the chapel and genuflected. The priest was there with normal clothes, not wearing an alb or chasuble. All he had was a stole around his neck. Instead of using the main altar, it seemed he was going to use a small table about 50 cm x 50 cm x 50 cm. This gifts for Mass were set up on it and the priest was sitting behind it. I sat down. I thought about what was likely to happen, that I had been to Mass the night before, and decided the hour would be better spent with another walk around the grounds that staying for the Mass. So I left, before the Mass started.
