Over the weekend, the Vigilante availed himself of the generous Benedictines of Clear Creek Abbey in East Oklahoma. It was the Vigilante’s first time being immersed for a time in the monastic life and praying the full Roman Divine Office. Below are some photos of the trip (please forgive the poor quality of some of them, as picture-taking was far from the top of my priorities).
The beautiful land of Northeast Oklahoma
An exterior shot of the Abbey, with parts undergoing major construction
The monks apparently have a love of Byzantine-style icons
And Western art as well
More posts incoming with more substantial thoughts…
