Happy New Year and Happy Feast of Mary, Mother of God!
These days at the Abbey have been quiet and restful for the most part. Several of the monks had their parents visit around Christmas and the days following. A couple of my classmates from college seminary even dropped by and we had a chance to visit. We also welcomed regular guests and now have several oblates here for retreat.
It snowed on Sunday, which has given the grounds a nice new look. I took some pictures yesterday for you to enjoy.
Blessings to you this New Year!
