As you can see from the pictures on the previous post, spring seems finally to have arrived, long after New York and Boston.

Some good friends suffering from various ailments asked if we would be willing to have a healing mass at the monastery, and so the date was set for last Wednesday. Approximately 25 people attended and enjoyed a light breakfast afterwards in the new living room/refectory/conference room in the guest house. We continue to pray for you, and for all the sick and suffering who have asked for our prayers.

On Saturday morning, eight Knights of Columbus showed up, full of energy, good will and physical strength, to split and stack wood that will feed our furnace and keep us warm next winter. (Scroll back two posts to see the pictures. We have not yet figured out how to combine pictures and prose in the same post.) Thank you, Knights!!! We are very grateful for all you do to help us!
