Visiting the Chapel at the Monastery
There is a monastery just a few minutes away from where I reside that has a chapel open every day for masses in the morning and prayers. They also have holiday masses which are really nice as the singing voices of the sisters are just angelic and uplifting. I like to go there now and then, especially when life throws me curves, to just sit and pray. It is easy to take in the tranquility and sometimes you could even hear the sisters singing or praying. I light a candle for a small donation and write my prayer intentions down. I have been coming here for the past 15 years, more so during the divorce of my brother and his wife. Their son (my nephew) was three at the time. He will be 18 this fall and starting his senior year of high school. How the years have just gone by. I only wish my brother was around to see it.
