"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

It was a quick mud season, and a sudden spring so now it's baby goat time!

That's right!

First Lilly gave birth 5 weeks ago, three happy healthy goats; 2 boys and a girl.

Five weeks later, Princess had a boy and a girl in the horse trailer.

As a first time Mom she did pretty good, our niece Rebecca made the whole birthing process work. 

So on Mother's day it was time to bring all the mothers together and the kids too!

Naturally our Tom wanted some photo time!

All in all a pretty photogenic day at the 
Mary Theotokos Monastic Center...

...stop by to see the fun.

Happy Mother's Day from the place named after the Holy Mother.
