We are rejoicing in the return of rain after its long absence. That doesn’t mean the drought in this part of the country has ended, but it does mean that relief has arrived in the form of moisture. May it continue! Our fields are green and the gardens of flowers and bushes are also thriving.
At the same time, Forest Service Road 151 leading to the Monastery has not be adversely affected by the rains. We are very grateful that guests coming for private retreats as well as day visitors and pilgrims are able to get in and out of the Monastery without problems.
To all who are traveling these days or on vacation breaks, may you stay safe and healthy, and as parents might tell their children, at least in ages past: don’t forget to say your prayers.
Be assured of our prayers.
Abbot Christian and the monks
