A lovely video - I want to be a monk in my next life! :-) ... actually, I want to be a monk in this life, it's just my task to figure out how to do it on this side (the outside) of the monastery walls.  The monks are a great help to me.

Beth, why wait? There is a group of women who gather regularly at the Abbey under the guidance of Dom John Eudes. One is a very fine iconographer who painted two exquisite crucifixes, one of which is in the abbey. Another is a tireless parish administrator. You can contact the monks and ask about this group if you like. The Abbey's website is www.geneseeabbey.org. You can see a photo of this group of women at http://www.ourladyofnewhelfta.com/journal/journal-9.php. Scroll down a ways. They are pictured in front of the statue of Our Lady of the Genesee with Dom John.

In this third letter Archbishop Viganò no longer insists, as he did so forcefully in his first letter, that the restrictions that he claimed Benedict XVI had imposed on Archbishop McCarrick—one he alleges that Pope Francis later lifted—can be understood as “sanctions.”
