We enjoyed a great post-Easter party in which it wasn't so easy to pass around even plastic eggs. The prizes inside made it worthwhile and so did the laughter.
Sisters diligently take notes during a presentation by Brother Donald Bisson, FMS. His topic for the day was, "Community Life as Spiritual Practice."
Today was a pilgrimage day for a trip to Stockbridge, Massachusetts. We visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in the morning. Later all twelve of us enjoyed lunch in a small sandwich shop that withstood our invasion with good humor.
Then we were off to the Shrine of the Divine Mercy were a dear Brother gave some sisters a tour of the grounds in his motorized cart.
This is a statue of Pope John Paul II on the grounds of the Shrine. Many of the huge tents erected for Divine Mercy Sunday remain up and provided welcome shade on this gloriously sunny and warm day. They tell us the temperature hit 95 degrees at home!

We've had the benefit of great speakers (more to come on that score), enjoyed terrific meals and conversation, shared recreation (if pass the Easter egg is recreation) and, of course, prayed the Liturgy of the Hours together and been united around the table of the Lord at Holy Eucharist. All has been a tremendous blessing.
AND the weather has been the most beautiful with all the signs of spring and new life filling our eyes wherever we look.
More to come.
