Monastic Guest – John Asher

Hello Father,

Monastic Guest - John AsherI hope that everyone is enjoying the onset of winter over there. The weather in Sydney is fantastic and warm.  Here is the reflection on my time at Mepkin Abbey we spoke of my writing.
I arrived at Mepkin abbey in the beginning of September. The weather was warm and clear and the days were starting to get shorter, giving every prayer at compline a unique character as the sun set over river and cast its last burning rays through the high church windows while the monks sang to God, asking for his protection through the night.
