The Outstanding Benedictines of Norcia!

Tonight I am at a gala and fundraiser for the wonderful community of Benedictine monks at Norcia in Italy. They are in Italy. We are in Connecticut.

Look them up! Click HERE

Card. Burke is here. I had a chat with him earlier.

I can’t speak highly enough of these good people.

Some shots.

    An evening with The Cardinal!

    I wonder how Fr. Cassian’s health is? I hope and pray he is doing well and in remission.

  4. My husband and I received an invitation, but unfortunately we could not attend. I wondered if Bro Francis would be there, along with that great beer.

  5. Robbie says:

    Cardinal Burke! Enough said.

    Looks like a nice time, Father Z. I wonder if Father Reggie Norman was there tonight?

    I assume you’ll be at the Mass at St. Mary’s this morning? See you there, Father!

    One of my brothers traveled up from VA for the event. I’ve have to ask him if he had the opportunity to meet you. :)

    Fr. Benedict…I still remember him walking in the garden as a novice, then “Br. Jeremy.”
