Br. Monday needed a break today from being chased by hippos and crocodiles and pretending to listen to the abbas. If you need him, he says he’ll be fishing with the net Abba Achilles gave him.
So until he gets back, here’s a list of his adventures so far:
1. Abba a Word
The start of the series with a little primer on the origins of the monastic movement and the Sayings of the Desert Fathers and Mothers. And for those of you noticing the sad absence of ammas in this series, I’m looking into the sayings and stories of Syncletica and Theodora. Basically, everything they say to do, Br. Monday should but doesn’t.
Wherein Br. Monday does something he shouldn’t.
Br. Monday still doesn’t like talking about this.
Wherein Br. Monday gets a free brick!
Wait for the exciting sequel: If You Give a Hermit a H…oh never mind.
Wherein Br. Monday learns the true meaning of education.
Wherein Br. Monday wishes he had chosen a different life.
If you forget anything from this list — don’t worry! — Prof. John will fill you in.
