I live in a special type of monastery

November 29, 2019 1 Comment

Raising children...as demanding as it is... offers a perfect setting for true reflection...as we do the mundane, yet necessary, work of motherhood.

Let's face it...wiping bottoms, scrubbing toilets, making meals, and doing dishes DOES humble us and gives us time to pray.

Our domestic church becomes like a real monastery!

I have thirteen children and always had aspirations to become an MD... Yet, God put me where I really needed to be at the time.

I'm still in that setting, yet blessed to now have my office attached to my home so that I am always available to my family (...and I still cook and clean..lol) ♡

I made a short recording for you, below.

Love and blessings...Your sister in Christ, Wendy

I live in a monastic type situation, myself, Wendy, being in supported accommodation with seven other single men because of an acquired brain injury – in Sydney, Australia. Still get to Mass in the city every day (a 10 minute bus ride then a 45-minute train journey), to the church, (St Patrick’s, in the CBD, near the Sydney harbour bridge, the oldest church in Australia), where I have been going every day since 1983 (when I’ve been in Sydney, which is the majority of my adult life – I’m now 59) – and I’m firmly hoping it continues for another thirty years!.Please God!
