Today in the United States, we honor our fathers. Usually this refers to biological fathers, but we like to extend our thanks and praise to ALL fathers--fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, our holy father St. Dominic, the priest-fathers who have been so good to us, God the Father, and all the men who have been like fathers to us, in whatever way. May God bless you and keep you, and thank you for all your love, generosity, and providential care!
We have had an interesting summer regarding visiting friars, and we hope to bring you some pictures and tales soon. Our new chaplain doesn't arrive here until July 18, so we are having several of our brother friars visit to fill in the chaplain duties. We will be glad to get our regular chaplain installed, but meanwhile it is great to meet and reconnect with so many of our brothers! Thanks to all the friars who are coming this summer--we appreciate you!
