Book Study and Discussion

August 26, 2019 Dear Sisters,St. Benedict taught that Christ is as near as our neighbor. If we can not love the Christ we can see next to us, how can we love the Christ we can not see? Living in Community thus becomes “a school for the Lord’s service” (Prologue 45). Part of building that community of love is the common worship and prayer—the Opus Dei.As we approach our tenth year as a community, I invite you to join us in a common daily devotional reading of The Rule of Benedict. Benedict recommended that each new monk read The...

Installation of Barbara Willis

Day of Pentecost (C) – June 9, 2019

[RCL] Genesis 11:1-9; Psalm 104:25-35, 37; Romans 8:14-17 or Acts 2:1-21; John 14:8-17, (25-27) Genesis 11:1–9 This passage in Genesis describes a time when all of humanity resided in one place and spoke one language, a vision of unity that sounds awfully appealing today. Imagine how our perception of the world’s economic and environmental challenges would change if we saw ourselves as part of one global community, with loyalties that reached beyond our particular region, state, or nation. And think of how delightful it would be to freely communicate our hopes and dreams, our joys and sorrows, to anyone...
