From Dublin to Cambridge

After only two short days we had to leave Dublin and travel back to Cambridge. Once again we took the ferry and the train, so it was a long journey and we leave Ireland at noon to make it back to Cambridge by midnight. I started the day by going to mass at St. Teresa’s Carmelite Church. The church was tucked away on a small street, but once inside, I found that it was a lot bigger than it looked.

As a side note, when looking at the church’s website I found this prayer from St. Teresa, which I love:

Christ has no body now but yours.  No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks with compassion on this world.

Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are His body.

Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks with compassion on this world.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

After mass, I went back to the hostel and met my friends for breakfast before we walked back to the train station. Because of the ferry schedule, we were sailing out of a different port than we came into, so we had to take the metro to get there. The port was in a small town south of Dublin. It was fun to be near the ocean and we had some time to walk around and enjoy the Irish coast before we had to get back on the ferry. Then, we took the ferry and two trains back to Cambridge so that we were ready to start another week of class.

I got a picture of the River Liffey on the way to the train station.

The coast was beautiful. I love climing on rocky coasts 🙂

There were tons of tiny sail boats with kids learning to sail. It must have been some kind of sailing school.

  1. I was fun to hear from you last night! I can see how the coast is fun since it’s different then the countryside! I am glad you enjoying these moments. Mom
