We wish you a holy Lent full of blessings from the Holy Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ. That tree of life only able to save us, to wash , cleanse and unite Christ crucified . Be his banner, the Holy Cross be, his best friend , his most dear and most , the instrument of his victories. Indeed Jesus Crucified prefers nothing but to be crucified and to love Him. Let us ask the Blessed Virgin and Saint Joseph teach us to know and love the Cross , may we obtain from the Holy Ghost the Wisdom of the Cross.
The project of building continues at the Monastery of San José in Colombia . We finished building the basement with 3 rooms enabling more space . All the wiring is already well advanced . The sceptic pit is now complete. We have since started building our garden and vegetables at the bottom of the Monastery . We have also built a dam to accumulate rain water so we can water our garden continuously .
The brothers will come from annual retreat tomorrow preparing for our great feast of our patron the Holy St Joseph , we ask your prayers for each and every one of them and that God to fill you with his blessings and His Holy Love in the lap of our Patron St Joseph.
We appreciate your support and prayers. This monastery also promises to intercede with continuous prayers for each of you and your intentions , especially in this Lenten time when life requires change .
With our blessing and gratitude.
Fr. Arizaga OSB
