We were surprised and delighted to receive the gift of new scripture commentaries for our library. When they appeared on a refectory table all labeled, book marked, and full of ready to use check out cards nuns gathered around as if it were an Easter basket full of eggs and chocolate!
After a waiting period of a couple of days for browsing purposes, permission was given to begin checking out the books…but only one per sister. They are quietly but gleefully being snatched up.
We are grateful to God not only for the gift but for the practice of good, daily spiritual reading and study materials. We can never stop learning about God. Deo Gratias!
