Since posting links to Advent Reflections last week, some of our sisters have sent additional links to wonderful Advent resources. One is called "Reflect Emmanuel" and comes from Emmanuel College's Campus Ministry Department. What I like about it is that contributors range from the president of the college to members of the class of 2013.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to spend time at Weston Priory in Weston, VT. The prayer of the community is, as always, food for the soul. There was light gentle snow all day Saturday. It was like living in a real life Currier & Ives-type setting in the village of Weston. Here are a few pictures in and around the Priory. What a contrast to the July days we spent there at the time of the Feast of St. Benedict! Each season has its own special personality. What a gift!
If you haven't been able to take time apart during this Advent Season, maybe you'd like to consider something after December 25 -- which is, by the way, still the Christmas Season! Visit our Retreat Center website and read about what's being offered during and right after the Christmas Season.
