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.

Apropos of nothing

Brother Maltus just returned from his parents' 60th wedding anniversary. He told us it was a nice, simple ceremony. One of the other brothers then began to reminisce about this couple's 25th wedding anniversary. Both husband and wife were close to fifty years old at the time and had brought three children into the world. For his sermon at that Mass, the priest choose the very appropriate theme, "The Evils of Birth Control."
