In mid-July Father Emmerich Vogt, OP came for a long week end from the Holy Name Province based in California. He had been with us last year for our annual retreat. He gave about six lectures on different aspects of Community Life and how to create a spirit of peace and harmony. We found the talks excellent and very practical. Besides a lot of note-taking there was also a lot of laughing. He gave down to earth examples of how Jesus calls us to \”die to ourselves\” so that we may be more transformed into His radiant image.
During the past month, we received various visitors. There are two events we would like to share with you.
Thank you, Father Emmerich. We hope to see you again.
Then, two weeks later we had a delightful visit with the Pastor and members of the Altar Society of Most Holy Trinity Church in Trinity, Texas. The town of Trinity is about an hour\’s drive southwest of Lufkin through the Davy Crockett National Forest.
Our picture below looks a little strange because they were spread throughout the room and we couldn\’t get everyone in one photograph. As you can see the pastor, Father Carlos Rangel, originally from Querétaro, Mexico, came with half a dozen women to visit. They had many important and interesting questions.
We hope they come to see us again, and we can learn more about them.
