Ora et Labora at Subiaco Abbey
Subiaco, Arkansas March 14-18, 2019

Another good few days with the Benedictine community of Subiaco Abbey in Subiaco, Arkansas (www.countrymonks.org ). On the way up to the monastery on Wednesday evening, I stopped at Pete's Place in Krebs, OK (just outside of McAlester, OK) for great Italian food and a Prairie Berry stout.

Brother Raban invited me to give a talk to the academy students on Thursday March 14.
The rest of the weekend was spent helping out around the grounds with Brother Francis and down at the brewery with Brother Basil, star gazing with Father Mark, and praying and taking my meals with the community.
