Prior Bonaventure and Brother Andre have a combined total of some fifty years of “prayer and work” in the Chama Canyon wilderness as Benedictine monks. Neither is celebrating a particular anniversary this year, but the nice photo recently taken in the sacristy before the Conventual Mass elicits recognition of these two valued confreres.
Brother Andre is a “Connecticut Yankee,” and Prior Bonaventure hails from Vietnam. Both enrich our lives with their particular flare for humor, good zeal and faithfulness to the monastic life.
Ad multos annos, Prior Bonaventure and Brother Andre! We’d be the poorer without ye!
