An abundance of rain has fallen recently in the Chama canyon and we are grateful to God for this gift to the land. More moisture is needed for relief from drought conditions, so we won’t cease praying for rain just yet.
The Fall colors are in full view now and the many cottonwoods along the Rio Gallina and Rio Chama are showing their final glory of the year. Golden leaves shimmer in the gentle breeze at this time of year and delight the eye.
In the midst of desert beauty we send our greetings and prayers.
Abbot Christian and the monks
