Temporary Goodbye to a Great Mentor

Have you heard of Fr. Thomas Dubay? Maybe you've seen him on EWTN TV. Maybe you've read a book or two of his on prayer or Religious Life.

He went on to his eternal reward the other day, so we temporarily say good-bye to him. He was our retreat master two times, and we use many of his books and talks in our initial and on-going formation. He has made a huge difference in the Religious Life, especially in this country.

Fr. Dubay, thank you for all of your inspiring talks and insights! Thank you for teaching us about contemplative prayer and the wonders of Communion with the Holy Trinity (from Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross mostly). We will miss you!

Super September, cont.

On Labor Day, we began with the Holy Mass, all of our Morning Prayers and Adoration, and then we trecked out to the local "Wildlife Refuge". Most people do not know that we have one of these in our backyard. We had a good time there, as you can see in the pics above!

Super September!

Dear Friends,

It's been so busy -- sorry the blog has been low on the priority list. Teaching Religion, having a "Sisters Day Out" at the Wildlife Refuge (those animals above are at the refuge, not in the classroom!) . . . it's been busy! This bottom picture is from St. Joseph's School in Amarillo -- the Sisters are enjoying their new "mission"! More pictures in the next post!!!
Top picture is from our Prayer Time together in Amarillo before going to the Refuge.

Getting ready also for the upcoming "Come and See Retreat" -- the Theme is "Receive Love -- Be Love". Pray for us!

God bless you all!
