Where is Br. Monday?

Monastic Monday
Have you seen this monk?

I’m sorry to say, but Br. Monday was quite hurt by my words last week. He hasn’t spoken to me since and has been gallivanting around the countryside rather than following his monastic schedule (not that he actually followed it before, but he always made a splendid show of pretending to follow it).

I discovered he had left one day when I was trying to wake him up at the crack of noon. All I found in his room was this poem by Thomas Merton scrawled out and left on his desk:

THWPRVNCL
The Provincial has
left with a woman
The Provincial has
run off with a
woman the pro vincial has run
out wi tha wo man the VERT
he has gone and WENT
THWPRV cl hs lft wth a wmn
Psst he has LFFT
WNT WTH a LADY who?
THE VERY REV FR PRVNCL SJ
he flew with a lady
to tropical cancer
THE VERY REV has flown
away with a lady to the trpc
of cncr THE VERY has fled
wth a wmn to the trpc of CONCERN
Psst he has LUFT too well he has
LUFTLUFT LUFT LIFT the very rev
TROPICAL PROVINCE HAS LUFT
wth a wmn

So if you see Br. Monday or the Provincial, please let us know…
