Upon returning to Cameroon, Br. Dan, Sr. Hannah and I had the pleasure of visiting a Cistercian Monastery founded by monks from Leicester, England 50 years ago.
Our journey there was very dusty and bumpy as we are in the middle of the dry season. The foliage on the side of the road matched the reddy brown color of the roads, with a thick layer of dust settled on them. So arriving at the Monastery was like entering an oasis, with flowering trees, green grass and practically spotless buildings. Their wonderful hospitality included showing us their lovely chapel, woodshop, candleshop and flourishing vegetable gardens followed by a delicious meal. What an unexpected blessing, and what a difference gracious hospitality makes!
