Deeply Rooted

Deeply Rooted

Deeply rooted   Rooted in Christ Jesus we stand firm, when the earth shakes, and the waves come, in the midst of suffering and yes loss the living waters give us fortitude, and in that inner strength we learn to show love and compassion to all--Br.MD

Don't grade yourself while praying

Don't grade yourself while praying

Don't grade yourself when praying   I sat to pray today, tried to meditate, could sit for a few minutes and then my mind was all over the map. I also fell asleep for a bit. I can always tell, my neck hurt..   So I got our my rosary and begun the round, slowly, and I settled in for a bit, then I yawned, and wondered what time it was, waiting for the five minute warning bell for Vespers, it took forever to ring, but I moved on to the next prayer.   Finally the warning bell rang, and

It contilnues to tighten its grip, Covid19

It continues to tighten its grip Covid19   The abbot came and saw me today alerting me that after talking to our family doctor, and consulting with a few other professionals, we are going to close our church to the public. He was told that having the back of our church open as this crisis develops could endanger those who come out to the Monastery grounds.   So this Holy Week is going to be much different than we have ever experienced as a community for the last 60 years. It is double sided

Transparent Spirit during sleep paralysis.

I remember when I was 3 years old, or even younger, I was always visited by a transparent being. This being didn't have any form of communication. He will grab my hand, and take me to the deepest part of the earth, always to a lake full of snakes. I always assumed it was an evil spirt. I didn't know but my grandmother used to openly practice witchcraft during that time. After my grandmother died, I didn't see this spirit anymore, until my mother died, and this time, I saw two transparent beings

Day 1 in Self-Isolation

Welcome to my first blog on sharing exposure of my cringe worthy self-isolation YouTube vlog series. I'll try my best to produce videos whenever I can and keeping you all posted. The vlog is about unboxing things I've brought couples of months now in which China is very slowly releasing postages outside of it's country. In which it really surprised me and made me abit weary on what could've touched my package before me. But never the less here's the video hope you all keep safe and well dur

Alleluia by Leonard Cohen a powerful prayer​

Alleluia by Leonard Cohen a powerful prayer    The song alleluia by Leonard Cohen is very touching. Today, someone pointed out a video on you-tube for me to see, of a young man singing this song from the balcony of his apartment. He was singing to uplift the spirits of his neighbors. I was deeply touched by the act of kindness, but also the power of the song.    Probably for the first time in my life, when seeing something on the internet, or reading about it in the newspapers, I am finding

Brave

No..I don't mean the browser.. But anyways I was watching the Pixar movie "Brave" (yeah..I'm an adult and I watch animated movies, ok? :P ) and afterwards I decided to go on Amazon to see how other people viewed the movie and I was astonished how hardly anyone understood the real meaning behind the movie and just WHY it was called "Brave". It wasn't because Merida (the main character) went into the forest to undo a silly and potentially fatal mistake and no, she was not being brave for

Reflecting, Chapter Two

Chapter Two When I was very young, I was fascinated by the strange, archaic cultures depicted in National Geographic magazine. Wow. Halfway around the world there were primitive people living in the jungle! and Amazon tribes living in longhouses alongside that great, majestic river! One photo in particular has stayed with me over the years: a proud tribal warrior with a painted face, his teeth carved like shark’s teeth, looking fierce and exotic. Halfway through my tooth procedure the

The starkness stands out

The starkness stands out

The starkness stands out,   I feel like a mouse, hunted by an invisible cat, feeling its presence, yet it eludes me.   I hate the feeling, Lord, vulnerability, being in an open field, no place to hide, yet it is life as it has always been.   The starkness stands out, as well as life's fragility, so I do the best I can, pray, work in our infirmary, be present for those i live with and love.   Truly like flowers of the field w

A Time for Reflecting

While social-distancing, with lots of time and few distractions, we have an opportunity for self-reflection, and for remembering those moments that changed how we see ourselves. I’ve been remembering the time I got my tooth fixed.  It was early 1989, I’d just gotten a training date from Continental Airlines, and I decided that it was time to do something about my front tooth that pointed forward instead of down. I wasn’t particularly embarrassed about my tooth, but I thought it might b

The experience of fatigue as a way of prayer​

The experience of fatigue as a way of prayer​

The experience of fatigue as a way of prayer Fatigue will sometimes lift if we pray, perhaps because we are praying truly for the love of God, this forgetting of self can help to relieve anxiety and fear, which can reduce anger that is often fed by these painful experiences. Trust is a choice, so choose, go deeper, become freer, and allow grace to do it's work. Even if fatigue is not lifted, it is the struggle that leads us closer to the Lord--Br.MD

Rethinking our lives

Rethinking our lives

Rethinking our lives   In this time of crisis is allowing the community to also rethink our own lives and how we live out our community values as monks. It is making us more aware of our connection with the world, and how we need to connect through prayer and to be available to those we know and love who live near us.   Everything in this world is fragile, can easily break and die. As we are seeing now with the whole world seeming to stop. Sports canceled, restaurants closing, empty highways

A different kind of war

A word of encouragement as we distance ourselves from one another: I recently watched  ‘Darkest Hour’ and ‘Dunkirk’, two movies that are inspirational to me. It struck me how this viral war that we’re in today is different than the World Wars: we’re unable to comfort our friends and neighbors, as did the people of London while huddled together in bomb shelters. We have no symbols of unity and strength like Rosie the Riveter, and no classrooms where children can stand together to recite the
