A message from Abbot Aidan,

Our world is in a time of change. The vineyard is in need of workers, are you ready to follow the Lord? Have you felt a tug at your heart that doesn't let go?

I did, and that's what brought me to this monastery, to fulfill the call God had placed in my heart so many years ago. But I kept putting him off. I thought to myself, it's a big step, I don't know if I can do it. Will they accept me, am I too old? Am I worthy enough? Talk to anyone in religious life and he or she will probably tell you they had similar feelings... and many others!

It's normal, it's how the Lord works... testing and questioning, coaxing and encouraging. But at some point you know that you need to make the decision, and that's what I did. And the Lord opened the doors for me. The Lord waits for us to take that first step, and once we do, he will bless us. He has blessed me, in so many ways.

Are you ready to answer the call? If so, call me and let's talk. I need workers in this vineyard.

In Christ,

Abbot Aidan, OSB oliv
