Recent rain has turned our Chama canyon valley greener than usual. Experts tell us the great Southwest is suffering through drought conditions, so we are grateful for any amount of moisture to our land.

The reopening of our Monastery grounds, church and Giftshop as of May 31st has already brought a number of visitors to our remote location.

We always say, the deeper you go into the desert, the more you are sought out. This is not because we who dwell here are great or deserve attention, but because of the lure of desert beauty and the silence it holds.

May the Lord bless and guide all who seek the face of God, everywhere and anywhere, as the world regains some degree of normality after a long stretch of distress and unprecedented crisis in the history of humankind.

With our continued prayers for your needs and intentions.

Abbot Christian and the monks of Christ in the Desert
