Physical distancing (social distancing) in this time of the Covid-19 pandemic creates the illusion that we are not dynamically connected to one another.
Yet, through prayer, we are actually and wonderfully closer to one another than is physically possible.
Prayer brings us below the surface of our day-to-day interactions and ordinary awareness into contact with the life-force of each person we call to presence in God's loving Spirit.
Calling upon God in prayer for one another opens pathways of connection that are healing and transforming.
In prayer, we enter into the mystery of grace and blessing where love enables us to encounter and cherish one another on a deeper level of being...

During August mid-month we celebrate the Dormition (the Falling Asleep) of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Our brother Leo was the Abbot of the Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem when he founded Weston Priory. The anniversary of this "falling asleep in God" occurs just a few days later. On this occasion, we remember as well our brothers Philip, Columba, and Robert who have gone before us.
May our hearts awaken to God's vision inviting us to new life now and in the coming time.
