Dear Brothers and Sisters,
My husband and I have been blessed by letters from Brother Philip Anderson, Abbot at Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek Abbey. This past week, we received a very good assessment and an encouragement from him, in which he stated:

Abbot Anderson also quoted from a homily delivered at Chartes Cathedral in France (just a few days before the Irish referendum). His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah addressed the same issue, referring to the words of St. John in his Gospel:
The light has come into the world, and men have preferred darkness (Jn 3:19)
