Today is a special day for us in the Community of Solitude. It is our second community feast day - the second anniversary of our founding in 2008. It's a real privilege to be part of a community at the beginning stages like this - we're literally creating the history of the community as we go!
It is quite amazing how God has blessed us in such a short time: twelve members as at the time of writing (seven professed and five novices), and we have been contacted by several others. God obviously had a plan for taking the monastic into the everyday and COS has been one of those ways. I feel privileged to be part of the great journey!
Happy birthday, COS, and may we continue to keep following God wherever the Spirit flies.
