Vincent Gardiner

We're back from Celebrate, of which I'll update you on in another blog, so hold your horses! But now I'll introduce you to another student - the only true Brit in the course this year - Vincent Gardiner. Here's what he has to say about the School:

'My name is Vincent Gardiner, I am British, and I am 22 years old. I was looking to give a year to God, to deepen my relationship with Him and discern my vocation in a community focused on prayer. I was not particularly prayerful before I came to SPES, and knew I needed to improve.

The School has exceeded my expectations in every way. Spending so much time in prayer and with prayerful people has changed me in a way that I could not have imagined. I now know that God is never outdone in generosity - He has given back so much more than I could give Him.

My favourite activity is SOS Prayerline, where we pray with people who call a telephone number. The faith and honesty of the many different callers always touches me and helps me to grow in faith, and I am sure that our prayers, before the Blessed Sacrament for four hours, are answered.'
