O Adonai

In this second day of the Great O antiphons, I recall my time with the Community of the Beatitudes in France, in the Abbaye Blanche in Normandy and the Abbaye St Martin du Canigou in the Pyrenees. The beautiful song we sang, Adonai mon Berger (The Lord my Shepherd), was a million miles from the pastoral care given to members of the community, but I still recall the power of the the song.



About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.
