A Busy Bee


September and October are very busy weeks for the harvesting and the canning. With pantry full and muscles sore, we now rest and enjoy the mellow autumn days with God's paintbox of landscapes.

Jesus is generous both in harvest and graces. We have dear friends who come to our aid when we need help and curious converts who want to make yet another, deeper step to become more like Christ whom we serve. There are many inquiries into the Plain Catholic charism. Some come to seek a deeper spiritual life. Some only seek fellowship.

Some think we are "greenies" (environmentalists) and some think we are saints. We are none of these. We are simple, straightforward seekers and disciples of Christ who try to divest ourselves of all distractions that keep us from prayer, family, study and work.

Now that the harvest is done and the days are freed up, tis my hope to again be more present on the posting of this "day in the life".

That's me away then.

I owe you the answer to your question of what was the name of the St. Leo Abbey monk who operated the bookstore. It was Brother Patrick, right? The artist monk who liked to paint ships was Brother Paul in case you were also trying to remember him.

We just finished a weekend retreat at St. Leo Abbey, it was wonderful. A spiritual harvest has filled our hearts.
