A few more pictures and thoughts from Blue Cloud Abbey

Benedict wrote, "Let each guest be received as Christ." So even the workshop cat went out of his way to give Melissa a "pet fix" during her retreat.

Brother Benet presents Melissa to make her promises as an Oblate, in the presence of Abbot Denis.


The Oblate said...

Peace to you, My Dear Sister Mary Magdalene. May you find your walk with St. Benedict as fulfilling as the rest of the "Crew" have.

The Archer of the Forest said...

Br Benet is hilarious. Have you read his book?

He has several out, and you are right about the humor. He gave Melissa a copy of his new one, "Motley Crew." Promises more spiritual insight delivered w/ great wit!
