Glendalough and Pilgrimage - 7th Weekend

Another week gone here in Dublin!

I know I said it already, but time is going sooo fast! It's only a month left!
This weekend it was time to visit one of the most important sights of the Dublin area - we drove to Glendalough!
 It seems that every time the Spanish groups hear that name it sounds like a boring trip for them, but I really don't understand it! When you see the photos you will know what I'm talking about.
After the 10 a.m. mass at Our Lady Queen of Peace, we drove to Glendalough praying the first Rosary of our pilgrimage (=romería). Already on the bus we were able to see beautiful landscapes, look:
When we got there, we had lunch and then visited the cemetery, the old Cathedral and the tower. After taking some pictures, we started our walk to the lake - it was just 2 km. I had planned to play some football and pray the second Rosary, but suddenly... IT STARTED TO RAIN! I know it is quite normal here in Dublin, but after reading St. James' reading about Elias and how he prayed to avoid rain... I thought that Elias would keep the rain away!

Anyway, the rain was not going to ruin our plans. We waited under a roof and when the rain stopped, we had a nice ice-cream and walked back to the starting point. When we got there, we prayed the second Rosary and then got into the bus to drive back to Rockbrook and - after praying the third Rosary of our pilgrimage - play some football.
 There is only a month left and the boys are really making the most out of their stay here in Dublin. We have to keep on pushing them and encouraging them to talk, participate and work more.
See you next week!
