You were in my prayers throughout Mass yesterday. Was the day of your vows also Pentecost?

Thank you for your prayer!

It wasn't Pentecost, but as I recall it was the feast of St Lutgarde who was a Cistercian hermit who fasted on bread and beer! And St Alice the Leper, another Cistercian who had to become an anchoress because she had leprosy. She had great healing powers—for others. Now these are ladies with whom I really identify!

Congratulations! May such saints as these assist you!
I have appreciated your new book Writing the Icon of the Heart very much - got it in USA by AmazonUK.

Message for Phil: send me your email and it won't be published. Otherwise I have no way to reach you as comments come through with a 'no reply' return address.

Didn't Merton write a truly dreadful biography of St. Liutgarde as one of his earliest "assignments" in Gethsemani? I seem to recall the title What Are These Wounds?

Yes he did! Truly ghastly. He is responsible for so much that is wrong in contemporary "spirituality"; don't get me started!
