Certainly restless till we rest in God.

The atmosphere of the opening hours of Invocation 2011 has definitely been one of great tranquility mixed with a large amount of excitement for me. After having arrived yesterday evening feeling quite tired and anxious to pitch my tent, I was ready to settle down for the night. However, as usually happens, the voice of God was interrupting my plans through the call to assemble in the main pavilion for the opening address and then Vespers. Thankfully, the time of prayer and reflection throughout the beautiful liturgy brought to my interior self some much needed peace and respite. Fr. John Hemer also gave me a lot to think about in his marvellous key note speech last night. My sleep-deprived night in a tent was not enough to dampen the true voice of rest calling me to a much deeper and lasting peace this morning. Off to mass now.
