It seems our life has been filled with goodbyes lately….and it has been somewhat overwhelming. So I may be quieter than normal….
We have said goodbye to two very dear priests that have been called elsewhere to serve the flock. Fr. Kodet and Fr. Fromageot are very special. Fr. Kodet has been here the longest and leaves a huge hole in our hearts. He is like a brother to us.
Last days before our priests left:
Our biggest goodbye is coming up! Our daughter, Rosie, an integral and beautiful part of what goes on here will be joining the Benedictine Convent in Gower. MO the beginning of October!
Indeed, we are happy! But we are also facing the reality of her leaving and this is, and will not be, easy!
Rosie’s teenage years have had their suffering with four years of illness…up and down, up and down.
We said a novena to Father Kenneth Walker, FSSP+ in Advent and, since then, she has had a slow climb up to a more stable physical health.
She has been discerning for some time now. So she will enter in October and we will see how her health holds out. God’s will be done. The novice mistress told her that oftentimes, health improves….sometimes not. The life is rigorous, we will see…
They are almost done building their Church. A lot of their funds have come from their lovely CD’s! From donations, too…
The pictures are from their beautiful website if you would like to peruse it.
Please keep Rosie and all of us in your prayers as we turn a new page in this Book of Life!
