A beautiful photo link!

Our Passionist friends at St. Joseph’s Monastery in Kentucky invite us to make a retreat with them.

I would love to be there right, when their lovely grounds are in splendid autumn, offering hope in the vivid colors that accompany approaching silence; promise of renewal.

But, since I am nowhere near Kentucky (and like a bad wine, I do not travel well) I will content myself, for now, with enjoying the lovely photos which the sisters have posted on their blog.

Maybe we should take up a collection and send Maureen Dowd to meet these happy sisters, where they live and pray, which is their work and rest. For refreshment. We can all use some refreshment.

And follow this link to a beautiful gift of morning prayer

Good morning!
