Lack of frequent posts

Hello everyone,

After lent is over, and we begin the Easter season, I will again resume regular use of Twitter and other social media.  If you have been following this blog from the beginning, you know that I started it to keep family and friends updated on whats going on in the novitiate.  However, now that I will again be using other forms of social media, I will not be posting regularly on this blog.  I also realize that I haven't really been posting 'regularly" to begin with.

I will keep everything I have posted so far, and may once in a while update it with another translated homily by Fr. Tischner.

God Bless, and please continue to keep me in your prayers.

We have just passed the half way point of the Novitiate year a few weeks ago.  It was time for our Pilgrimage to to National Shrine of St. Francis in San Francisco, here are a few pictures from the pilgrimage.

We stopped by the New Camaldoli Hermitage
 and celebrated mass with the monks.
This was in one of the hermitages.
