Benedict's visit to our Monastery!

Pope Benedict's Coat of Arms

     Woah! I bet that got your attention. :) In the refectory while we eat our meals in silence we watch programs pre-recorded off of EWTN or listen to audio tapes or CDs of a spiritual importance. During meals we feed body and spirit! Yes, we continue to enjoy watching EWTN's coverage of Pope Benedict's visit to the U.S. (Great job Raymond Arroyo!) We are currently watching the Mass for Priest, Deacons and Religious. At the rate we are going we will finish perhaps in mid-May! So, as we ponder his talks and homilies we feel as though we are being soaked in the presence and spirit of the Vicar of Christ!

     One of the Sisters recently came across an excellent article written by Peggy Noonan about the Holy Father's Mass in St. Patrick's - the one we are currently watching. Click here to read that great article - Flock Feeling His 'Charisma of Sincerity'.
