We continue to enjoy mild temperatures and even some rain. The many cottonwood trees in the Chama canyon are slowly turning, always to a golden color, and shimmering in the sun with the occasional breeze.
This week we were happy to welcome five Cistercian Benedictine monks from the Diocese of San Bernardino, California, who were in the  area, especially to see the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe and the “miraculous staircase” there. The chapel is a popular destination in Santa Fe.
With this comes our greetings and prayers. Thank you for yours.
Abbot Christian and the monks
