Lenten Message from Father Gregory
Dear Members of the Abbey Family,
As we begin this holy season of Lent, may I assure you of the prayers of all the monks for many blessings for you and all your families. We will hold in our hearts, in a special way during this season, all your intentions and concerns. These days are holy, because they invite us to shed the preoccupations and distractions of the rest of the year, and focus more clearly on the essentials: God's love for us, and the promise of salvation in Christ.
Make we make our own the prayer which the Church prays on the First Sunday of Lent:
Grant, almighty God,
Through the yearly observances of holy Lent,
That we may grow in understanding
Of the riches hidden in Christ…
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
