This is the way the chapel looked at Holy Peace following this year’s midnight mass. We began the experience in darkness and were escorted from our car by Brother Kevin. A local power failure had blanketed the area in darkness and just like the shepherds 2000 years ago we were greeted by an angel with a torch as the Brits call them. Our escort guided us to the chapel where we joined dozens of others in a candlelight vigil. A few minutes prior to the start of Mass the power was restored and we celebrated the Nativity of Our Lord. It was very Franciscan, lovely and mystical too.
