Mount Saviour Monastery
The month of December emphasizes the virtue of hope with the coming
of the Savior. We are grateful for a season free from too much anxiety
with the buildings or the health of the monks. The Arts & Crafts
building required a new oil tank; the work was completed in a short time.
Guerric who is now the guest brother, designed the crèche.
During the octave of Christmas, three monks celebrated their feast day:
Stephen, Br. John and Br. David. On a feast day, we have recreation
with refreshments. At the beginning of the month, we mailed our Christmas
Chronicle that can be seen in color on the following web site.
Peace and Joy for the Year 2000
Pilgrimage to the Holy Land: October 22-31, 2000
To visit the Land Jesus knew and loved, to walk
where He walked and see the same beautiful hills, the same beautiful and
peaceful Sea of Galilee. To visit Bethlehem and Nazareth, to spend
several days in Jerusalem.
For the third straight year, Fr. James Kelly is
guiding a pligrimage to the Holy Land; he lived and studied there several
years, associating with other scholars while at the same time living among
the people, learning their languages, Hebrew and Arabic, and imbibing their
culture, background to the Bible.
He is now sending brochures to friends who want
to go again and others who have asked about the pilgrimage. The group
will be smaller than the usual pilgrimages.
