Here is a very interesting "letter" from the writer Mary Gordon of The Company of Women, Final Payments and others. She is a longtime Catholic. I think you'll find it quite something.
We had a lively retreat here this weekend in which Sr. Carolyn used as the theme the life and works of our Brother Thomas, the potter, who passed away four years ago now, I believe. Many of the retreatants are also oblates, which reminded me that I wanted to share these unique photos that I received from one of my oblate friends who lives in Colorado. You won't believe your own eyes. The photos of the flowers are really photos of people!
