May you find peace here, as I did
May you find love here, as I did
May you find rest
May you find solitude
May you find yourself
May you find God (if God is what you seek)
May you know the many blessings of this place
May God protect you and keep you, always.
~Prayer for the next guest, said while making the bed with fresh linens
St. Clare Monastery
I don’t want to leave, but it is time to go. Thank you Sisters of St. Clare, for your prayers, open hearts, hugs, hot meals, guidance, patience when a non-Catholic joined you for prayer, warm welcomes for my husband and father during their visits, for hikes in these woods, for this blessed place and for the immeasurable gift of solitude.
