Crazy weather...

You know that the weather has gone crazy (at least for a day) when Montgomery is colder (by only 1 degree) and getting more snow (2 inches to zero) than Atchison, Kansas!! Have fun with the white stuff, Montgomery!!

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn's visit

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna, visited us on Sunday, January 31, 2010. He offered the Mass, preached the homily, and gave a talk to a packed auditorium of students, faculty, newspaper reporters, etc. He was fantastic and his talks are on the BC website ( - under the iTunesU menu on the sidebar.


The main work that the other novices and myself are doing right now (along with the occasion shoveling of snow) is the renovation of some of the 3rd floor rooms, making them inhabitable for the future junior monks (of which, we 3 are hopefully progressing toward). We are painting them right now...

Vocation Guests

We have had about a half dozen vocation guests recently... please pray for them. And we have a couple of more guests scheduled for the next month. Please pray for all of their continued discernment!!
