Here in This Place

Lectio Divina

"I have many people in this city."

Acts 18:10

Thinking, then meditating, on the significance of the city as a place peculiarly God's own. When will I return to reading Lewis Mumford?


Continuing Johnson, Friends of God and Prophets, in the chapel. Continuing Brown, The Ecumenical Revolution. The latest issues of America and National Catholic Reporter await.


Yesterday, spent the day in Ventura County. First, lunch with a dozen of the novice brothers to celebrate the 30th birthday of one of them. Then, an excursion to the bookstore to purchase a jigsaw puzzle for the community (we have a few avid puzzlers among us). Then, an hour walking on the beach in Oxnard.

This morning, we celebrated the Eucharist en espa├▒ol. This afternoon, ministry at the prison. This evening, faith sharing with the novices. Now, returning to the personal statement and curriculum vitae.


The cool spell is about to be broken. Here comes the heat. Here comes the feeling of summer.
