In The Quiet
Inside the Abbey Chapel is beautiful stain glass windows that depict certain images from the bible. Theses pictures are the focus of most tour groups. It was built in 1942 and has imported brick from German is what I was told. It's a nice place to sit in the quiet and just pray and talk to Christ who did everything for us. There's silence, and the tile floors help cool the place, the altar is big and is under a crucifix that catches the eye. On the sides are where the monks sit during mass, or Liturgy of the Hours. This church has been the center of the campus of SGU for me. attending daily mass and saying the rosary everyday. My faith is growing by silence just how it is suppose to.
My name is Br. Vincent Mary Carrasco, my friends call me Vinny. I graduated with a Bachelors in Theology and currently in my first year of temporary vows in formation with the Capuchin Franciscan province of Mid-America studying at St. John Vianney Seminary. I enjoy blogging and bringing out the greater message and bigger picture in life. I have always had a passion for helping those people who have no one to help them. One of my favorite things is seeing someone joyful and happy because of the work or joy that we bring. In my experiences, I give catholic insight, prayers, reflections and thinking that help me grow in my own faith. I hope you enjoy it.
