The Fatigue/Lethargy of Life

The Fatigue/Lethargy of Life   Grace is everywhere, it can be seen working in the hearts of many men and woman, who may not have faith, but seek to relieve the suffering of those they encounter.—BrMD.   “I do not measure time as men measure it, nor do I judge the intensity of suffering as men do. I know what I am doing, even when I hide My plans from men in order to test their faith in Me, and cause that faith to grow strong and indomitable. There are, alas, many souls who, in There are,

I am an unprofitable servant

I am an unprofitable servant This past Sunday we had our Lay Cistercians at our retreat house. It is a monthly affair. Below is a homily that he shared with the Lay Cistercians by our Fr. Cassian. He always has an interesting slant when he speaks about the parables in the Gospel. Hope you all enjoy and get something out of it.—BrMD   Homily Preached to the Lay Cistercians October 6, 2019 by Fr. Cassian OCSO I am an unprofitable servant. An unworthy servant. An unnecessary servant.

What we all seek

What we all seek

What we all seek   What remains after we die? Our money goes first, perhaps fought over by our loving family, or fame if we have it is soon gone, and if not what does it matter(?), a picture in a book or in many books means little when dead.   Perhaps it is the seeds planted in loving service, giving life to others producing much fruit, is what remains.   For love is what we all seek like plants rising up to the sun seeking light and warmth.-

Letter to Michael who died in 1958

Letter to Michael who died in 1958

Letter to Michael who died in 1958 (my little brother The most common experience for most of us, if we live long enough, is to experience the loss of loved ones, be they family, or friends. Over the last few years, my family has experienced the loss of three siblings. It is not easy, but a normal part of life. Losing a sibling at birth, and not having any experience of knowing, loving, holding, or simply being with, is something different altogether. Below is a letter I wrote to a brother who

Holy Feast of St. Therese 2019

Holy Feast of St. Therese 2019 Only God can see what is in the bottom of our hearts; we are half-blind.—St. Therese of Lisieux Two great sins that are very common, so common in fact that they are taken lightly. Something is sinful when we fail to love as commanded by our Lord. It is something that we do to ourselves, and along with it comes a self-wounding that leads to alienation from ourselves, others, and sadly in the end, if allowed to grow in our souls, from God. Self-hatred leads t

Choas/Life/Faith

Choas/Life/Faith

Chaos /life/faith Faith can be bare-boned at times, with trust being the only operative ingredient working. Chaos seems to be part of life, though if I had my way I would do away with that. Then again, I feel if that wish came true, perhaps I would disappear, or just become flat, like a lake with no ripples; for struggles seems to be needed by our species. Like the salmon striving to go upstream to breed, so we do the same, often for reasons that are veiled. An inner compass guides me, and I

What is real, and most important in our lives

What is real, and most important in our lives?   January 13—Le Fresne church. I said, “Truth, I adore You.” “Yes, I am Truth. Sin is falsehood, error, darkness. “Every form of goodness is truth: the desire for good, work for justice . . . You will see later that only one thing matters and that is truth, for God alone matters. Attach no importance whatsoever to anything apart from Me, however pleasing it may be. Happiness is found in Me alone. “When I created man I placed deep within him a s

The Afterlife

Yes, I believe in an afterlife - even though one life would be enough for me because for me quality is better than quantity. I'm a private person so there is so much I can't share because I'm very careful when it comes to this topic because I know that we all understand things from our own perception most of all. I will start by sharing some videos that I like about this topic:     Dr. Brian Weiss: Past-Life Skeptic to Past-Life Expert .

My thoughts

September 21, 2019 I have seen a lot of evidence regarding Bigfoot. But when I don’t understand is these people that recorded the videos never seem to record long enough, or seem to follow him while recording. I believe this cryptid is real but we need good evidence and video of him/her. Plus some of the footprints that they have casted of his/her foots look good but others and not even close to a footprint. Also if this cryptid lives off of plants or what ever he eats. how come we have not

A convict with a sexual abuse past

A convict with a rough background (Sexual Abuse)   Most people, I believe, have a rough background, or at least a period of time when things were not optimal for healthy growth. For some, it can be a lifetime of living with their chaotic past, which can actually be generational. That is, passed on from one generation to the next. For others, it can be from being in a home that is temporary, like many foster homes. While there are most likely many foster parents, perhaps the majority, that

A beautiful Chapter-A talk on the common will

A beautiful Chapter-A talk on the common will

A beautiful Chapter (A talk on the common will in Monastic Life) Br. Philip, our Sub-Prior gave us this chapter talk this last Sunday. I found it extremely well done, as well as insightful. I would like to share it with my friends. Any path that seeks to lead us deeper into union with the Divine Will, is by that very fact counter-cultural and will be often misunderstood. However, as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. To live deeply one’s faith, no matter the vocation will draw

The Struggle with Evil

This weekend Br. Cassian asked me to give a talk on the working of the Holy Spirit in the world and evil.

Below are some thoughts on the subject.   Monastic life and the Holy Spirit (the struggle with evil)   The Good Zeal Of Monks (The Rule Of St. Benedict – Chapter 72)   Just as there is a wicked zeal of bitterness which separates from God and leads to hell, s
