Prayer, reflection and origami

It’s a nice way to spend a day off: enjoying an afternoon of reflection with fellow priests and deacons, and doing some relaxing paper folding! I can’t post photos of the invisible, spiritual fruit of the reading, prayer and discussion that we shared at our clergy gathering.

Lastly, a church model which I developed last summer:

I need to give myself more time for origami. It really helps me to relax!

    Did you happen to see my blog about origami cranes for Japanese kids? I know making cranes is probably relatively mundane for you with all the design work you’ve done, but they serve a good cause.
