About an hour ago, I was outside watering the trees and bushes around our Stations of the Cross when Brother Johnny came out of the friary, made the long walk to where I was, and told me Bro. Francis Gasparik, the provincial minister, called and spoke to our novice director.
It's official. I am taking vows.
It feels good to know. Now waiting for the official letter to arrive.
Back now from retreat, back in the desert for three more weeks. And back to work: I'm helping with the evening meal tonight.
