"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

Happy Easter, Christ has RISEN!

Happy Easter to everyone!

We had a great Easter week, surrounded by by family all the way from Baltimore and Pennsylvania.

Everyone arrived early Thursday morning at 4 AM after driving twelve hours.

The next day they unloaded!

With all this family there was always wonderful meals with lots of help and lots of laughs.

There was of course time for the Divine Mercy chaplet and Sorrowful Rosary at 3 pm on Friday as well as Feet Washing the night before on Holy Thursday.

Even with the snow flurries and sleet there was time for an Easter Egg hunt and fishing!

The love and joy of family on Easter,

what a blessing.

nunc autem Christus resurrexit!
