"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

Spring has sprung,..and so have GOATS!

Baby goat time! First ones were born yesterday as I drove back from Massachusetts. The children named them, Bambi, Elsa and Taco,..........I'm just sayin.

The other pregnant ones are getting ready to give birth too!

New life in Spring at Mary Theotokos monastic center!

It's Spring? So where d'ya want this snow I'm moving around?

Spring? Sub Zero wind chill, new snow amounts, ice topped water buckets, ya gotta love Spring in Vermont...
I'm just sayin'.

But no time for that now, gotta shave the beard off and get to Massachusetts for an ACTS men's retreat.

If you haven't heard of these I strongly recommend you find one in your area, or better yet start one in your parish, they are life changing experiences!


Hope it's warmer down in Massachusetts!

Meanwhile we dream about this summer view on the driveway,

Hope your warmer where ever you are, 

Chilly Spring greetings from Vermont,
