Day 8 at the Genesee Monastery
I have been doing a lot of praying, reading, walking, and thinking. The whole experience has been very moving. My transfer to St. Paul's in Kensington CT has been voted on and will be announced this weekend. I already received a very nice note from a parishioner welcoming me.
Lest you think I am getting holy or something. Today for the first time I left the Monastery and went into Genesso to have a McDonalds Hamburger and a chocolate kiddie cone. Somethings never change. The food is great here but the monks eat healthy and there is no meat in their diet. You know me and eating healthy are not usually in the same sentence, hence the escape to McDonalds.
Peace and Prayers
By the way for all you skeptics who said "the poor monks" when you heard I was coming here. I have been able to keep quiet and not disturb the peace.

FB- so glad you are back in CT!! A family member coming home always warms my heart!! I look forward to visiting with you and hope we will find time for that in the future. Also, I have to say your post about the monastery sounds so peaceful!! I miss retreats soooo much! I used to go our local Shrine for a Silent Retreat every once in awhile to regroup but i haven't done that in a long time and I really could use that right now!
Prayers to you in your new ministry!!
