By guest opinion,

Summer is here, yet people’s idea of getting away is the same as if it was December.   When the weekend hits there is a natural rush to hide in a dark movie theatre, rent a DVD or visit a busy restaurant.   Summer is your best chance to get outdoors and we need to use it not just for ourselves but also for our spirit side as well.

Helping Homeless Children: 2008 Bertha Holt Award

July 21, 2008 --

From Holt International,

Portland, Oregon—First given in 1979, the Bertha Holt Award honors those who have selflessly, and with loving care and concern, given themselves in personal service to help homeless children of the world.  The 2008 Award was presented in honor of Myrtle Croy, the second employee ever hired by Harry and Bertha Holt. She worked for Holt International from the late 1950s until 1976, helping to develop Holt’s adoption work. Korean adoptee Stephen Nelson recalled Mrs. Croy as the “angel” who helped him find a family in 1959, cooked for him when he visited, and joined him in intercessory prayer for his son when she was 99. “I could not imagine not having her to call and talk to, or living without her prayers for me and my family,” he wrote for her memorial. Mrs. Croy passed away October 2006 at age 100.

Mount Abbey home to world class chef (an expert skier)

July 14, 2008 --

From the Mount Angel Letter, Mount Angel Abbey,
By Abbot Peter Eberle, OSB

In the Rule, Saint Benedict declares that monks should take turns cooking for the community. Such an arrangement probably created some unique misadventures in dining. (“That’s OK, Brother Pambo. I’ll pass on the stew. Just hand me the Pepto-Bismol, please.”) Times have changed. Today many monasteries have hired cooks to manage their kitchens. However, it is rare that a world-class chef should hold that position. Six years ago Mount Angel Abbey found itself in this enviable position when Hans d’Alessio was hired as head chef and manager of the Abbey kitchen.
