August 15th was a big day at the monastery. We had two guests from out of town visiting; one who came to officiate at my Solemn Life Profession and Priestly Vows, and one who came to celebrate these two things with us.
I'll be honest with you, I was right on the edge of panic that day. Life Vows is such a large commitment. Was I ready? Was I worthy? What if the monastery got struck by lightning and then a tornado hit it?
Reflections from the monks and nuns of OES.
