Flight canceled, lost my spot in the monastery (because there is a year long waiting list and others were behind me) have to look for a different monastery now........ Such is life. I put my trust in God that He knows what's best for me.

Wow, they couldn't even wait for you to catch a later flight? But as you say, it's all in God's hands.

All monasteries are different and all have different rules. I guess that one wasn't meant to be and I am okay with that.

You can come to my monastery.  Your obedience will be to prayerfully remove all cat pictures off the internet.  It will be hard and painful for your soul, but so is purification.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I assume by "cats" we mean something else, at least if we're talking about what really dominates Internet traffic.

Since when did being nice become synonymous to being a Christian?

Modernist thinking and being consists of nothing but uncritical acceptance.

Since a vague and superficial 'niceness' filled the gaping moral void in these our post-Christian societies.

Bananas, onions, garlic, and thyme. I'm starting a Dominican bean stew.

Other ingredients: sweet potatos, kidney beans, a little tomato, coriander or cilantro, and  of course salt and pepper. I put in jalapenos too but it's not traditional.
