We are now in the Fourth Week of the Easter Season, enjoying the arrival of Spring, as we contemplate the mystery of Christ’s Resurrection and the redemption of the human race. Christ is Risen indeed!
The weather is very pleasant just now, with daytime temperatures in the low 70s. We are beginning to get more outdoor work done, including cultivation of the fields and landscaping projects around our grounds. The road leading to the Monastery, Forest Service Road 151, is dry and was graded during Holy Week. Day visitors are most welcome, with the Giftshop open each day from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The shop is nicely stocked once again, under the watchful care of Brother Isidore. Our “Desert Art Gallery” is open each day too, as well as our church. Private retreatants are also here, sharing the Conventual Mass and Divine Office of the Monastery throughout the day.
Our greetings, prayers and thanks to all our families, friends, benefactors and oblate. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you.
Abbot Christian and the monks
