Feast of Benedict, monk and founder; home after the thunderstorms
How fitting that my first full day back home should be the feast of Benedict, whose Rule enjoins monastics to take a vow of stability!
There were storms all over the East Coast yesterday, so the airlines wisely kept planes on the ground for a while, but this caused many delays and missed flights. I did get home in one piece, my luggage and I were reunited at 1:00 a.m., and I have slept long and well. Off to a mountain of work! More later about Benedict and the Rule, both dear to my heart.
The fresco is of Benedict and his sister Scholastica.
Also late tonight: something on Benedict and Scholastica, sisterly stubbornness, and --another coincidence-- a big fat storm.
