It's Martha and Mary Time Again

Photo of this statue taken a few weeks ago That's right. As of yesterday, half of the Sisters (the Marys) are in a silent retreat for a blessed 8 days while the other half take on most of the monastery duties (hence, the Marthas).

Please pray for us during these very special days.  We need these times of rejuvenation that we be renewed in our surrender to God's mission for our contemplative life and that we be filled with generosity to live it. May our Lady intercede powerfully for us that we may fall ever more in love with her Divine Son - Jesus!
