The title of this posting, borrowed from Psalm 95(96), expresses well what we in the Northern Hemisphere are experiencing now with Spring in full swing.
Our cloister garden is at present bright with the blooming of various colored irises, and not far behind are the peonies. Many of the flowers with be used for decorating our monastic church over the coming days and weeks. As the irises and peonies fade, roses will be budding through the summer months.
With our prayers for the needs and intentions of our families, friends, benefactors and oblates,
Abbot Christian and the monks
