DSCN0587The Spirit, together with Nature, is renewing the face of the earth, to our joy and delight! Mother Woodchuck, after a long winter’s hibernation, has come out from under the back porch with three babies. Sr. Donald has returned from Elmira after preaching a much-appreciated retreat to the monks, and thanks all of you for her prayers. We’re all delighted to have her back, including Monk, who expressed his pleasure by jumping on her lap with all of his 102 lbs.!DSCN0614DSCN0601
