We made a quick trip out to the monastery yesterday, and even though we were only there a short time, it was awesome… As always.


It’s amazing how well these quick trips can restore your energy, help you refocus, and renew your outlook on life. We spent most of our time outside by the lake, and in the Abbey because the bookstore closed just after we arrived.

We walked the Stations of the Cross by the lake and then realized we were just in time for evening Vespers. If you haven’t been there during one of the many prayer times during the day, you’re really missing out.
