Easter Blessing to you!

We had a beautiful Triduum and celebration of Easter. We had our usual Easter Vigil at 4:30 AM, which finished up right around 7:15 AM. It was nice having a couple of monastery vocation candidates with us for these sacred days.

Easter Monday we had the Benedictine Sisters from Clyde over to our monastery for Evening Prayer in the Basilica and a nice festive meal. It is a wonderful annual tradition that we always look forward to. Below: The monks welcome the sisters in front of the Basilica Monday evening.

I saw some recent photos of Abbot Gregory online. Of course, as the Abbot Primate, he is in Rome, but seemed to have a beautiful celebration of the Easter Vigil at Sant Anselmo.

Meanwhile, at Conception Abbey, the weather has been beautiful. It will be especially joyful to celebrate Easter week in some nice weather.
