JULY VISIT @ TRAPPIST MONASTERY

Last Sunday, I went to Trappist Monastery for my monthly visit. It was actually unplanned because of the bad weather the previous weeks. I looked up the sky and no sign to rain anymore so I proceeded to Iloilo Wharf after I attended mass. I noticed the color of the sea in Iloilo Port. Its color turned brownish but when I reached Guimaras Wharf, the sea color is acqua green and clear.


The Monastery was so silent. I went directly to the chapel. I stopped when I noticed a butterfly on the way. It seemed dead already.

Only one person was inside the chapel. She is also the regular visitor of Trappist. I've heard, she is a doctor. I figured, she is in her early 50's. I uttered my short prayer silently usually "thank you" prayer and good health for everybody. I did special mention though. For I believe if we are healthy we can continue doing good things for ourselves and for other people.
I grabbed one of the monk's book and read a particular page. It's a hymn. I memorized because I want to share it with you.

Here it is:

"O God of truth, O Lord of might
who order the time and change a right
who send the early morning ray and light the glow of perfect day."
