"It seems strange to say, but what can help modern man find the answers to his own mystery and the mystery of him in whose image he is created, is silence, solitude -- in a word, the desert. Modern man needs these things more than the hermits of old." Catherine Doherty

This week at This Old Monastic Center!

This week at this old Monastic Center; John and Bill tackle the dark, dirty house basement-dragging out what they can to keep or rotten wood to burn. Cathy and her small team of volunteers tackle the second floor of the main house-guest room carpets are vacuumed, debris is gathered into bags and it looks as if the snow is melting. But hold on kids! NOAA weather is talking about SNOW accumulation for this Thursday! Will the gang ever be able to stand straight again after all this bending? Will Bill and John ever emerge from some dirty basement to walk in the light? Will there be even more snow to plow off John’s arch nemesis- 
                                                           THE DRIVEWAY?!! 
                                 Stay tuned to This Old Monastic Center to find out!
