We have lost several trees around the house this past year. The tall pine in front of the Abbey took a direct hit from lightning last fall and utterly destroyed it. A few other trees took hit and an oak was cut down because it was diseased. So on Friday several trees were planted around the house, most of them decorative. They are pretty tall so they should grow fast.

The Annunciation means a great deal to our new novice and thus the choosing of Mary Gabriel. M. Rebecca mentioned in her Chapter talk this morning that Pope St. John Paul II saw the feast of the Presentation as a second Annunciation, thus tying the two together.
