Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for so many days. Is anybody still out there?
Last week I was on retreat at Belmont Abbey in Charlotte, NC for several days. They had Wi Fi in the monastery, but I thought it wasn’t really in keeping with a monastic retreat for me to be blogging away as usual. Saturday I did a talk at Belmont on C.S.Lewis for Lent.
To prepare I re-read the first two science fiction books–Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra. I’d forgotten the amount of exciting metaphysical, cosmological wonders he weaves into the books–especially Perelandra.
Whenever I’m away there’s always catch up to do in the parish, so on Saturday I zoomed back down I-85 to take confessions, celebrate the vigil Mass and take Sunday duties in the parish.
Today is my ‘day off’ which means writing, having lunch with Joseph Pearce, doing my radio show and running errands. I might just get a chance to blog a little too.
