Update from New Zealand


 The discernment house I was staying with for a few days.  We headed out to the beach for the day and had a blast!



We got up early to try to catch the sun rise in Auckland.  The clouds failed to cooperate, but we had a good hike and prayed morning prayer on the beach!



A neat view from the beach 




 "Trekking" in the wilds around the beach

The sign at the beach picnic area.  I vote that we ditch our word "trash" and immediately swap it for "rubbish"!  



 Fish n' chips on the beach.  I love the lack of pretense; the restaurant just wrapped it all up in news paper and that was that.


On to the Eucharistic convention this weekend.  This is the first sacristy with a Led Zeppelin poster in it in the history of Catholicism.



The Sisters of Life and Fr. Liszeck from Kibeho leading the convention in adoration.


Now it is off to Hobbiton, a national park, and some exploring for my final three days in New Zealand.  God bless!
