Welcome and thank you for visiting this page! You’ll find my personal reflections on Christian Discipleship, insights on my adventures throughout the world, one day at a time, and musing everything Catholic and musical with a cup of coffee each morning.

Ora et labora 

Stumbling across old pictures bring about great memories! A few years ago, I ended my six week adventure in Rome to Norcia. It’s a charming little village on the outskirts of Italy! It’s am the birthplace of Bendedict and his twin sister, Scholastica. 

With the feast of Benedict now behind us, I remember this little time at this holy place and with great affection I call to mind the monks of Mount Angel, the first to form me.
