Your blogger is on a vacation retreat this week at Quarr Abbey on the Isle of Wight in England.

I’ll be blogging from England, and will try to focus my writing on my time there, things English and Catholic

Quarr Abbey is the beautiful Benedictine monastery where we were received into the Church in 1995.

The history podcast may not happen this week, and blogging may be sporadic, but I am grateful for my readers and hope you enjoy my musing from the damp lands.
