Mount Saviour Monastery

August 2008
Elissa Quinn & Marcos KriegerWe celebrated our patronal feast, the Transfiguration, Aug. 6th, as a liturgical highlight for us.  On Aug. 10th, Elissa Quinn who has helped at the ladies' guest house during the summer, gave us a recital.  She sang a variety of songs in French, English and Italian and was accompanied by Marcos Krieger.  The month of August is the time to wean our lambs and select the replacements and separate the males from the females.  Our female donkey gave birth to a male foal that attracts many visitors.  On Aug. 17th, a large crowd came for the Dedication Day.  A brunch and a piano recital by Fritz Orzelek followed the mass.  At the end of the month, Fr. Martin fell outside and fractured the pelvic bone.  Not much can be done about it  at this time and he can move around with pain until it heals on its own.
