10th Anniversary Countdown!

Ten days from today, April 3, will mark our 10th anniversary here at the monastery! In celebration, we are beginning a 10-day countdown! Each day, we will share a photo or two (probably photos you haven't already seen on our blog or in our newsletter), starting with 2018 and working our way back to 2009, as well as a quote from a saint or other spiritual author, submitted by one of the nuns. We'll let you guess what is happening in the photos, and then we'll give the answers the next day. We hope you enjoy the countdown!

Also: Happy Feast of the Annunciation! What a beautiful day to begin our countdown, remembering the moments these past 10 years when we were invited by the Lord to say along with the Mother of God, "Let it be done to me according to your word!"

"We always make the fatal mistake of thinking that it is what we do that matters, when really what matters is what we let God do to us. God sent the angel to Mary, not to ask her to do something, but to let something be done.” --Venerable Fulton Sheen (Quote submitted by Mother Iliana)
