Photographer Robert Falcetti’s collection of photographs taken at the Benedictine Abbey of Regina Laudis is stunning. Unfortunately, I could not manage to copy it to the site, but I urge you to take a few minutes to retreat to beauty.

    I was fortunate to have a friend who for several years lived just down the road from Regina Laudis, so I was able to visit there frequently. It’s a beautiful and remarkable place.

    I know for a fact they had a subscription to First Things in 2008, I’m sure they remain readers to this day. Thank you for linking to all those wonderful women who are all marvelously unique. The beauty of their polyphony has been known to make people tear up.

    Grace, life and heaven have set their seals on her

    Did you notice that actress Dolores Hart is a member of the Abbey? “Mother Dolores Hart, O.S.B., well-known actress of stage and film, who has been the Abbey’s Dean of Education since 1972″. She looks lovely in her photograph. I remember her from the movie Where the Boys Are and knew she had become a nun. again thanks. I love reading your blog daily. Have a wonderful day!
