Saturday – home but Rome again soon – SVD

It was great yesterday to have my first meeting with the SVD – ‘Society of the Divine Word’ in English – but the word order of course changes for different languages. In one country they’re known as the ‘Verdis’ so i’m sure they won’t mind me referring to them in this way.

Friday in London
