Fortieth Anniversary of my Solemn Vows June 12, 2020

Gentle Readers,

June 12, 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of my solemn and irrevocable vows professed in the Cathedral of St John the Divine, New York City, into the hands of Bishop Paul Moore. Anglican Franciscan friars and Roman Catholic Cistercian monks were the sponsors. I was professed as a religious solitary for the whole church. When Paul Moore died, he transferred my responsibility to Rowan Williams, who is my Bishop Protector to this day.

Please join me on June 12 in prayer and thanksgiving. Thank you.

I've only just seen your last posting, about the anniversary of your Solemn Profession. I am filled with joy at the knowledge of your discovery of your vocation, at the fruit, your various writings, which have been of great value to me.
I had a question, but that can wait now.

Dear Maggie,
My question was, do you know the writing of Bernadette Roberts? I am interfested, though I find the Catholic idiom difficult to relate to.

Dear Ian, Yes, I know of Bernadette Roberts' work; in fact I have met her. However, I make it a rule never to comment on a colleague's work. Sorry.

have been to this site many times but had been away for awhile after you "went silent." A belated word, then, of appreciative affirmation of your anniversary. By your ministry I have been and continue to be immensely graced
