O and oh, wow!

As we've done every year, here is the link to listen to Sr. Mary David's O Antiphons, sung by a small group of our sisters. We will be singing them as the Magnificat Antiphon every day December 17 through the 23rd. Enjoy! (If you really like them, I think you could get them on a CD if you contact Benetvision and ask very nicely---tell them I sent you!)

17th O Wisdom; 18th O Adonai; 19th O Root of Jesse; 20th O Key of David; 21st O Radiant Dawn; 22nd O God of all the Earth; 23rd O Emmanuel.

The "oh, wow" is the reaction of a dozen of our sisters who, after spending five months in our guest wing, move into their newly renovated rooms today on 2nd floor south. The other dozen have one more month, or less, until they can move back to 1st floor south---and then, and then--- we will be back to "normal." (No comments, please!)

Two skinny little rooms from 1969 have become one larger one with more closet area, space for a comfortable chair, and still a little room left to maneuver around.

Through it all the stained-glass window at the end of the hall survived.
