Benedictines have been around over 1500 years. A benefit of such longevity is the “long view” of history. We are rarely rattled by theological debates or mandates of contemporary culture. We have witnessed nearly the whole of Christian history and have acclimated to its many graces and struggles.
As we stand before the tumult of our economic system and pray for all those who may be endangered by the poor choices of others, we believe that, ultimately, “this too shall pass.” Crisis comes with opportunity. There are changes to me made and work to be done. It behooves all of us to breathe deeply and remain as calm as possible given the unnerving situation. As hard as calm may seem, “with GOD all things are possible.”
Blessings and love to you all…
