From Karen Bennett.When I saw Father Ben was organising a pilgrimage to Rome I was overjoyed.
FROM MARY WATSON
As this was my first trip to Rome, I was very excited.... We celebrated mass before we left Edenbridge, and there met our group of fellow pilgrims.
We stayed in a simply and very friendly convent 10 minutes walk from the Vatican. The pace of our days were Ďfull oní, we packed so much in, and with the help and guidance of Fr. Francis and Fr. Ben (at the churches and public transport!) we travelled around with ease.
St. Paulís Basilica, St. Peterís tomb and papal audience were highlights for me, although it is hard t pick because there was so much to take in and at times quite overwhelming.
I have so much still to process, it felt a very blessed experience and even in the busyness, I was able to experience calm and stillness.
I had a great sense of joy throughout the trip, it was wonderful to step out of the everyday journey and share with others in this wonderful way.
