A Spiritual Wellspring

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 monks apparently have a love of Byzantine-style icons


And Western art as well

More posts incoming with more substantial thoughts…
