So since April 2014, I have been going each Thursday afternoon after work to Espavel, learning about Catholicism taught by Juan Pablo. I am often shattered after a week at Dowal so I sit there half awake or reading, while my teacher turns up. It’s a two hour wait but I don’t care as there is a small, sweet, harminous chapel where I sit and pray, meditate or recollect my thoughts, especially after an afternoon of managing students with the school newspaper. I sometimes write this blog. There are lots of exotic trees around in the garden which has a millions misquitos seeking chele blood, as well as parrots squawking high up but not quiet at all.
Juan Pablo. He’s a lovely guy, a couple of years younger than me but he is a commercial lawyer with a young family. His sister is Pam’s colleague’s brother. He’s been great, very patient and calm, teaching the history and doctrines of the faith, the Holy Trinity, the sacraments and the prayers. We were reading a lot of the Three Minute Catechism, which is a wonderfully cartooned explanation of each part in bitesize chunks. I recommend it. It’s smart and good for beginners, children, teenagers and adults.
I will have to stop there right now. I’m very sleepy. I will try and do more tomorrow.
