  • Thank you to the Class of 2018 from St. Joan of Arc school in Lisle for this image of bicycles. Through their pastor, our Fr. Gabriel, they heard that Abbot Austin enjoys cycling.

Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Do not wish to be called holy before you are, but be holy so that you may truly be called so. Fulfill the precepts of God each day; love chastity; hate no one; do not harbor jealousy; do not carry out envy; do not love contention; flee exaltation.


-- Rule of Saint Benedict  4.62-69 (from chapter on the tools of good works)
