We Love Our Seniors!

It's that time of year again! For the second year in a row, we are having our seniors join us for a morning of reflection which begins with a presentation about "making holy the day" with suggestions from the writings of St. Francis de Sales. Following the presentation and a brief introduction to the Liturgy of the Hours, seniors join the monastery community for daytime prayer and then down to the refectory for dinner. Above, seniors enjoy a taco dinner and homemade cupcakes for dessert.

"As soon as they awake, the Sisters should cast their souls wholly upon God with some prayerful thoughts which the Holy Spirit will suggest . . . at the beginning of any interior or outward action, let them ask for God's grace and offer to His divine goodness all the good they may do . . . And let them not forget to do this even in little things which seem unimportant: eating, drinking, resting, recreating . . ."
St. Francis de Sales
