As the monks and Foundation kneel before the manger this Christmas, we will especially be praying for a Christmas miracle. The monks' present monastery is so wonderfully crowded with young vocations that there is no room left in chapel, dining room, and the many other common places of the monastery. The Foundation has worked very hard to raise the funds, but the costs of construction in a remote location, coupled with our need to build for a thousand years have outpaced our financial resources. If we are to break ground in the spring, as the monks are hoping, we beg for your charity this Christmas.
Christmas is truly a season of miracles as we recall the great miracle of our dear Lord's Nativity. Let us now beg God for the miracle of the funds so desperately needed to build the monks a permanent, fitting home in the contemplative silence of Wyoming's gorgeous Rocky Mountains. We have each been blessed by the hand of God with so many good things; if you can help in a special way at the end of this year of our Lord 2010, please do so. I assure you that your gift will be used directly for the most critical needs allowing us to proceed towards construction. TOGETHER we can build this monastery for God's glory and these devout, hidden men of prayer and sacrifice! God bless you a thousand times over for the goodness inspired in your hearts!
