Got a reflection on Lazarus’ Tomb written up that’ll I’ll be delivering at our community Vespers tomorrow. I’ll post it on here afterwards.
Going to Confession in a bit, Easter is coming soon! Confession is a wonderful way to experience God’s merciful love and fully experience the joy of Easter!
Giving a talk on Dante’s Purgatorio at the parish tonight. I’m excited because I used to do talks like this all the time when I was working at the parish in San Diego, and now it’s been almost two years that I haven’t done one. Oh and I’ll get to give the talk in my habit, so that’ll be new.
You can probably find the handout I’ll be using if you search for it on my page.
Love trolling one brother in the community. We let him prepare his Lenten Friday lunch of chicken and whatever meat he found in the fridge and juuuust as he is about to take it to the dining room we remind him that it is Friday as he screams, “Nooooooooooo!”

*Weeks of grumbling about how our toasters take forever to toast things*
Father goes out and buys a new toaster
Father leaves said toaster in box on kitchen counter
Everyone in the house is amazed by the box and the new toaster but is afraid to open the box
Box sits on kitchen counter for three weeks
Cook moves box into pantry
Father baffled as to why new toaster is in pantry
Max gets toaster out of pantry and sets it up
Last night was great fun as we were visited by English speaking provincials from around the world and the Vicar General of the Order, who himself was a novice here nearly 30 years ago! Good times :)
4 months of novitiate left till I get to return to San Diego to (God willing) anticipate simple vows for a week before my profession!
Yayyyyyy 8 months done :)
Sr. Mary Brigid of the Augustinian Sisters of St. Rita, on how to eat a guilt free cookie during Lent: “Give blood!” :)

Went to a neighboring parish for Mass. Four different people had announcements. This always happens at this parish.
I call the Church St. Patrick of the Bulletin Announcements
The Augustinian family! Sisters of St. Rita, novices (in white), professed students, solemnly professed priests, and local priests who support St. Monica’s home. What a great and fun day!
