Corpus Christi Monastery was featured on Channel 2 CBS News in New York on April 28th.    The nuns need help from the public to repair the almost 130-year-old monastery chapel that has extensive damage from mold, peeling paint and wallpaper.  They are hoping to have it repaired in time for their celebration of the 800th Jubilee of the Dominican Order and the feast of Corpus Christi on May 29th.

“A Son is Given” by Howard Lyon – Society of the Little Flower Christmas Card

“During Christmas time, Jesus wants a wretched and poor shelter; he wants our heart, purified, poor and empty of earthly affections, filled and adorned with virtues. He wants to find there only his most holy mother, ark and temple of every virtue; the ox that always ruminates on heavenly things; the donkey of our bodies, humble and subject to reason. May he deign to rest on the hay of our desires and make of them a yielding and fragrant hay, on which he delights to take his rest.” (Saint Catherine of Ricci, 1522-1590)
