Our beautifully blooming Amaryllis is a sight to behold. Beginning to bud this year on Laetare Sunday, March 14th, the fourfold flowers, facing north, south, east and west, are now in full bloom.

Sometimes the flower is called a “March Lily,” for its flowering time. An unusually tall Amaryllis at nearly four feet, the lovely flower has no detectable scent, but certainly possesses a beauty that cannot be beat.
In the midst of desert beauty we are blessed even in colder weather with amazing flora and fauna in the Chama Canyon Wilderness.
Prayers and greetings from your brothers in Christ.
Abbot Christian and the monks
