Dear Members of the International Fellowship of St. Bruno,

Praised be Jesus Christ! And a very blessed and joyful Christmas and New Year to you all! I am deeply moved, and with me, my monks, by the shower of assured prayers, cards, donations and gifts that you sent our way this holy season. At midnight Mass, I remembered you and your loved ones. It is our simple and very heartfelt return for all your kindness and generosity! We will continue to bear this gratitude in our heart!

Our special prayer this Christmas (which we join to yours) is that: with His grace, may we all always surrender our yes to God's gift of Himself even when at times, He is the fountain that flows by night! May we, in believing, be nonetheless drenched in its flow, and make our love secure enough to let us know what it means to be open and vulnerable, like the defenselessness and humility of the Child born for us today!

Devotedly your brother in our Savior Jesus,

Dear Bro. Michael Anthony, 

Praised be Jesus Christ! Since receiving your kind letter. We’ve prayed for you and with you. Follow the movement of your heart as the deer longs for the running water. I believe that we can discover the holy will of God move through the light that is reflected in the humility of our present situation, than in the nobility of a desire that is not rooted in it.  

Thanking you prayerfully for your prayers, and entrusting you to the maternal love of Mary.

Sincerely in Christ,
 
Prior of the Charterhouse of Transfiguration
