With Easter in March, this month was mostly busy with the
lambing and the first newborn on April 13th. It is an attraction
for many families and groups to make contact with the monastery.
The weather was very favorable and the predators stayed away from the
premises. By the end of the month, 200 lambs were born with a few
more to come. The pope's visit to the United States was seen by
some monks thanks to our recording devices. Some of us were able
to watch the highlights of a memorable visit. It was unfortunate
to hear the same commentaries during that week instead of letting the
viewers enjoy the music and the atmosphere of the events. We sent
our annual Dedication
to the printer to be mailed in May.
