In these past weeks, the wisdom enshrined in the Church’s traditional calendar has been on full display. With the Magi’s silent, prostrate adoration before the Christ child still fresh in our minds, we swiftly entered the time of Septuagesima -- those three weeks that prepare us for the holy season of Lent.
Mindful that preparation must also be practical if is to be useful, in this newsletter we share a few tips for Lent from the monastery’s kitchen master. We also list a few specific opportunities to sponsor furnishings for the new church. And, since God has blessed the monastery with new European vocations this year, we’ve added excerpts from an interview with our German monks.
We are grateful for all you do to help us in our mission as monks and hope that this newsletter inspires you to prepare well for the joys of Easter. We also ask you to join us in prayer for those who have died with coronavirus, for those who are sick and for the Lord to protect and keep us always in His mercy.
