The word was spread: Mass would be read at the friendship stone!
It had been a lovely mild and sunny day without any whiff of wind. Tonight it would take place at 8.00 p.m. sharp. I was thrilled already by the idea of having Mass held outside and at that specific spot…! Would it not be lovely for the visitors as well, to take part.
Well, there was ample time still when I set off for the stone of friendship. It was a perfect evening. The sea was calm, serene and hardly without any fault. 8.00 p.m. passed though and no one else around yet…May be Mass would have been held at 8.00 a.m., I thought. I waited for some more time while I had my own reflections at the stone of friendship at Cill Ceannanach…
It was only when I came home I found out Mass was being held at the new pier that very evening at the Mass Rock.
I am happy and grateful to Maria, our half year resident from Australia, who was prepared to give and share her impression of the event. Herewith you will find her story along with the picture of the Rock:
