The Next Phase…

One of the many blessings a Novice can experience during his first year of Novitiate would have to include the classes that increase his knowledge about the Order’s history, spirituality, liturgy, constitutions, and the process of discernment. Sadly, I’ve completed my last class today, and soon I will transition to Immaculata University, which will allow me to complete my undergraduate degree, helping me to fulfill some of the many requirements needed for ordination. It’s been a wonderful period of wisdom and insight, and I’m so grateful to the men and women who have passionately taught me all that they know. While the classes may have ended here at the Abbey, the dividends they will continue to payout over the rest of my life will be unending, as I’m more confident than ever about my choice of joining this Norbertine community. God has deeply blessed me over these last nine months and may I always do what is pleasing to Him in the next phase of my spiritual journey.
