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.
