Br. Monday is pretty shaken up after barely escaping the bandit attack last week, so the abbas decided that he needed a retreat. Until he gets back, here’s a list of his adventures so far:
In Br. Monday’s absence, we learned how a modern monk met the poet Czeslaw Milosz.
Wherein Abba Moses becomes Br. Monday’s favorite by convincing the other abbas to leave him alone.
Wherein Abba Pambo and Abba Giles have a disagreement.
It has to be a miracle that there haven’t been more Name of the Rose-style homicides in monasteries…
Br. Monday still doesn’t get the joke, and I’m not sure I do either.
Why not both?
Let’s just say he wouldn’t mind taking the “labora” out of “ora et labora.”
Br. Monday still doesn’t get why he was the only one who ran.
