I’d like to take a minute to thank my community, the
oblates, my family and friends for their support
during my recent stay at University of Michigan
Hospital. The prayers and Masses said were
definitely felt, the power of prayer is great.
Thanks to those family members, monks and friends
who made the long journey to the hospital to visit
me, some who endured getting lost in the hospital or
parking structure. Thanks also for the plants and
flowers and many cards. They made the eight day stay
Today is my fourth full day
home at the monastery with many restrictions both in
activities and diet until July 16, at least, and I’m
beginning to realize I cannot do all I thought I
could after this type of surgery. I need to
take it one day at a time. The healing and recovery
process will take a long time and I still need many
prayers to make it through this time.
in Christ and Sts. Benedict & Sylvester,
