Mount Saviour Monastery

March 1998

Mount Saviour Collections:
Br. Stephen & James C.Rev. Father Damasus was an excellent photographer, thanks to his friend Henry Mann who was the agent of E.Leitz (German cameras) and provided him with the proper equipment to make good SLIDES.  By his international contacts, Rev. Father accumulated stamps and assigned Br. Stephen  to classify those STAMPS in the early 60s.  Our oblate Brigitta Lieberson help whose husband was the president of Columbia Records, gave us many music RECORDS and tapes.  Br. Gabriel kept track of the collection and switched gradually to cassette and CDs.  In 1990, we acquired a video camera to record the main events of the monastery with sound an pictures.  Br. Pierre is reluctant to accumulate too many VIDEO cassettes because the present technology is changing rapidly.  Since his return, Br. Stephen has been working on the PHOTOGRAPHS that we took or received over the years.  He is shown with Br. James Cronen and some of the albums.

Abbot JustinAnnual Retreat:
Abbot Justin from St. Paul's Abbey NJ, gave an interesting comparison between the stages of life, the capital sins and the degrees of humility.  His practical experience and enthusiasm made the conferences alive and appreciated.
