I was reading the Urbi et Orbi message that Pope Francis gave today in an empty St. Peter’s square. He reflects on this time of Covid-19 in light of the story of the storm in Mark’s Gospel (4:35-41).

I wasn’t sure what it would look like, or how terrible …

I couldn't help it. HAD to pass this on...

We are all very aware of our first responders and medical personnel being heroes during COVID-19. And, we are all so very grateful.

The Kentucky Department of Charitable Gaming temporarily suspended all charitable gaming licenses as of March 18, 2020, in its attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The 2020-21 Quilt Club year set to begin April 1, 2020 will instead have its first drawing on May 1, 2020, at which time we will draw two winners!

In both the first reading and the Gospel for today we witness how persistent God is. In Exodus the conversation between God and Moses conveys how disappointed God is with the peoples’ choices which lead them away from him.

A wise woman once told me that life is mostly about showing up. “Be present to yourself, to others, and to God” was her advice for a meaningful life. These days, I think about her words in new ways, as the coronavirus challenges me to be present and distant at the same time.

About four years ago, before any of us had been encouraged to practice …
March 24, 2020 (Walking in the Holy Presence)
As many of us have been spending more time on the phone, or FaceTime, or Zoom, or whatever way we connect with technology, people have been asking what it's like in the monastery during these days of necessary distancing. We don't have any guests or visitors right now; nearly all of us usually going out to ministry are staying home; we are seeking new ways to support one another.
Yes, things are different...but they are still very monastic.
So, I decided to take a few photos illustrating some of the ways we are adapting here at Mount Saint Benedict.

The Feast of the Annunciation celebrates the moment in which Jesus became human and entered the world as one of us.

What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives

The world is a crazy place right now. Fear is everywhere and it seems like we are living each day not knowing what is going to come next. This week, our campus at the Mount has been closed off from visitors and most of the staff for the foreseeable future. We have had to keep all the doors locked even during work hours. The Sisters in the Villa are being closely monitored and cared for by our amazing nursing staff. The housekeeping staff has been doing a great job of keeping our buildings sanitized and wiped down. The kitchen staff is taking measures to keep the dining room safe for all.
