Fr. Cesar Valero Bajo, OP, who is the Promoter of the Nuns for the Dominican Order, came to visit our monastery! We had a wonderful time meeting with him and listening to what he had to say.
Fr. Cesar is from Spain, and his English is really good!
Sr. Maria Guadalupe and Fr. Cesar
Fr. Cesar exhorts the community to love all our Dominican sisters. We do, Father!
On Wednesday evening after the meetings, we had a grand Texas-style program for Father. Note his hat!

Almost the entire community with Fr. Cesar!
We were so enriched by Father Cesar's visit and hope he will be able to come to Texas again someday!
