Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

Legenda Fratrum, pars XX

An elderly brother was visiting from another monastery in order to attend a funeral....

Solicitous brother: How are you getting back to your monastery, brother?

Elderly brother: The undertaker is going to drive me there.

Solicitous brother: Make sure you sit up and occasionally say something!

Oh, thank you for the much-needed laugh, Brother Lawrence. That is excellent advice which the elderly brother would do well to heed.

It's nice to know I still have a reader out there. If failure to blog regularly were a sin, I would surely be destined for "warmer climes" in the afterlife.
