... perfectly safe for many years now.

The canons - that's what they're called - were very kind to me. I attended the evening mass at which a local choir performed beautifully. I dined with them in the evening, and joined them again for sung morning prayers and breakfast.There was a charge for staying there, but at no time did I feel anything other than a pilgrim being given the best of spiritual and temporal hospitality as I ...
