A young mountain lion from across the Chama River has been eyeing our flock of sheep and even gave them a “run for their money” in broad daylight. However, intrepid guard-donkey Matty chased away the predator for now, but that’s  no guarantee the lion won’t return.
We are truly surrounded by the grandeur of God, evident in the landscape and in the many creatures, great and small living in our vicinity. One of the monks took this photo shortly after the mountain lion had chased the sheep.
A blessed celebration of the Epiphany of the Lord, recognized by Magi from the East, bearing gold, frankincense and myrrh, gifts befitting the King of kings and Lord of lords.
We keep you in our prayers and we count on yours. Thank you.
Abbot Christian and the monks
