The greatest excitement of all: Carmelite World Youth with our Carmelite adventurer from London, Father John McGowan, OCD
I had to be up by 5am in order to be at our Carmelite Church by 6.00. The taxi came at 5.30 and I arrived at our place just before 6.00. I suppose there was a good reason why we needed to be there so early, though we didn’t actually do anything till 8 am. I was wearing my habit and felt part of the family. I met both the Generals, ours and the O’Carms; it was good to see them there; apart from one other we were the only Europeans there. My Spanish isn’t good but That didn’t stop me chatting to people as I ate breakfast which was given to us in a box. I spent quite a bit of time taking photos and using my camcorder, as I want to make a vocation’s video from this experience. At 8.00 we were ready to move off.
