Exploring Sonship

     From August 25th through the 29th, our Priory held our annual retreat at St. Benedict Monastery here in Oxford.  Two of our confreres from Holy Face Monastery (Clifton, New Jersey), Br. Antony Maldonado and Fr. Sylvester Jayakody were able to attend the event.  We were blessed to have Fr. Timothy Combs, O.P. as our Director this year.  Father is a Dominican priest who lives in the Dominican Priory  in Minneapolis, Minnesota and ministers at St. Thomas University just a couple miles away from his home.  Father presented the monks enlightening reflections on the theme of Divine Sonship through the call to religious life.  Our community was very impressed and enlightened by Fr. Timothyís presentations as well as his engagement with us on a personal level as he met with some of us individually.  We are grateful for Fatherís well-informed and concise insights about how the life of Christ is re-lived and embodied in our world today through our vocation.  It was a very inspiring experience!
