Summer skies at the Mary, Mother of Priests Tribute Garden. Even though we wake up in the very same place every day and see the same hills and valleys and skies, it is really just a glimpse of the infinite ways God can delight to make the ‘same old thing’ different each and every time in its beauty and wonder.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

With the recent answered prayers for rain…and fixed water lines, our gardens have been much happier of late. The Priest Garden’s bushes and shrubs have had some relief from the heat and dry conditions while their fellow gardens around Mater Dei house are providing beautiful flowers for the Chapel and Oratories and tasty vegetables for the table!

Spring is a wonderful season in East Tennessee. In the soft rolling hills of this area, sunrise and sunset are special treats. It’s worth the trek up the hill to see the first rays of the Sun falling on the new Cross at the Mary Mother of Priests Garden. A bit of Easter glory each morning. Deo Gratias!

Though storms approach (literally in the Tennessee River valley today and tonight) and the Triduum is nearly upon us, the sun and flowers overlooking the garden are shouting that Easter lies ahead.
