This morning the first talk is being given by Benedict Rogers, a serious player in the field of humanitarian work, whose campaigning for human rights has taken him to Burma, East Timor, North Korea and other incredible places where freedom of belief is not taken for granted.
Whilst telling us about his work Benedict also explained how he came to be received into the Catholic Church last year in the Cathedral in Burma. Prior to this he was a charismatic evangelical Anglican. He spoke of having witnessed the Catholic Church throughout the world and having come to fall in love with it. It was, he said, the most holistic and fullest expression of faith he had encountered.
Now it’s time for a quick coffee and then off to listen to Father Jerome Bertram expound the holy scriptures!
