Since the early days of the monastery, hospitality has
been a feature of Mount Saviour. We received manyof men and
women who needed rest and quiet time to reflect and regain spiritual
energy to cope with the challenge of daily life. Recently, we
were surprised to find our Border Collie extending hospitality to an
unknown cat. We saw him sharing his dog house with a yellow
cat. It gives us hope for nations to live in peace. If two
unlikely creatures can be so friendly, reasonable rulers should be able
to drop theirs arms (weapons) and embrace in friendship.
The month of October was very colorful and pleasant for large groups of
guest. The Emmaus group had their annual meeting on the week-end
of Oct. 10. Some discussions were held outdoor while the weather
was ideal. On Oct. 17th, the Prayer Shawl group had a retreat to
share ideas and techniques for this special type of works of
mercy. Joe Manzi brings a large group of men, twice a year, to
pray with us and learn from each other on their journey to God.
