Silver Jubilee on December 8th

Throwback Thursday in anticipation of December 8th, 2015, the Immaculate Conception, which will mark my silver jubilee as a monk.  Deo gratias!  I received the Cistercian habit on a snowy December 8th at L’Abbaye Notre Dame d’Hauterive, Switzerland.  (J’ai reçu le nom Benoît.)  It has been a magnificent adventure every step of the way!  Eventually, one learns—or fancies one learns—the importance of relying on oodles of grace … and how to be as innocent as a dove yet as cunning as a serpent!
