Emmaüs opens again

Ilness meant we had to close Emmaüs for a couple of weeks, but we opened up again this morning – with Morning Prayer at 8.30 as usual.

In the meantime some of us walked from St Jean-Pied-de-Port across to the start of the El Camino del Norte at Irun – through the beautiful foothills of the Pyrennees which the Basque people have very much made their own, with their red and white timber-framed houses and pristine settlements. This is one region of France which is not losing its rural population.

Love finds the way

Just outside Irun is this sign: Love Finds the Way



And below are a couple of photos of a remarkably striking crucifix in the Church of St Vincent in the old town area of San Sebastian.
