On a beautiful summer day this week our community was treated to a delightful visit with Sister Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB. She was in the area to preach a retreat for women at the Vallombrosa Retreat Center just across the street from us. During that time she found a bit of free time for a social visit with us. It was very interesting to learn about her home monastery of St. Scholastica in Fort Smith, Arkansas. And her stories of retreats she has given made us praise God for working through her in bringing so many people to adore and love Him. The books she has written are many and beautiful. The latest is "Abide: Keeping Vigil with the Word of God". It is very helpful in drawing one into the depths of the words of Scripture and nourishing one's spiritual life on the banquet of God's Word, To learn more about Sister, her books and her retreats around the country, click here.
