March 1st is the Feast of St. David so we will be celebrating my feast this coming week!
Feast days always seem to appear together during lent as we will in the next few weeks also have Saints…Patrick, Joseph, Benedict, and Our Lady (The Annunciation) which is our patronal feast!
In this year Dedicated to Consecrated life there is a wonderful document called REJOICE !
Here is a snippet from the document:
In calling you God says to you: ‘You are important to me, I love you, I am counting on you’. Jesus says this to each one of us! Joy is born from that! The joy of the moment in which Jesus looked at me. Understanding and hearing this is the secret of our joy. Feeling loved by God, feeling that for him we are not numbers but people; and we know that it is he who is calling us.”
To all Benedictines and Oblates, HAPPY FEAST for St. Scholastica, Benedict’s twin sister.
Having happy memories of visiting Norcia and Monte Cassino 2yrs ago and other places associated with these two great saints……….
A sad day this morning, we had to say goodbye to one of our beloved doggies, Coco, she had an aggressive tumor on her head but wasn’t in any pain. We’ll miss her and so will Skippy!
Our new Website is now fully active – why don’t you take a peek and let me know what you think!
Of course there is still a lot of info to put up – but its a beginning. If there’s anything you think that may be of use on it – please email and let me know and I’ll see what others think!
Have you ever seen a shooting star?
I haven’t, well that was until the night of 7th Dec at around 7.10 -7.15pm, at least that is what i think it was. I was looking into the clear starry night as I do at this time of year and all of a sudden a great light flashed passed in the sky at such a rate that if I blinked I would have missed it. It is the first time I saw this, and may never see one again.
It is supposed to be lucky, and you’re meant to make a wish….. is there anything else you should do?
Did anyone else see it?
Hope you are having a great Advent? We, the community have just finished an excellent Advent Retreat to help us to prepare for the wonderful season of Christmas so as to welcome the Christ Child into our lives.
Hopefully after many many delays, we will shortly be launching our new look website!
Keep a look out!
