Saint Ephrem

May the sacrifice which we gladly present on the feast day of blessed Ephrem, be pleasing to you, O God, for taught by him we too give ourselves entirely to you in praise.

When we heard these words during this morning's Eucharist, we well understood. Following the example of the saints and of Our Blessed Lady, we want to make our lives- all that we do, all that we say, indeed all that we are- a great hymn of praise to the Lord!

Delicate white irises are blooming in the monastery's enclosed garden.
