Construction Update: The Fun has Begun!



Overhang roof must be removed before the Novitiate Dorm can be built
At long last we can record that we have begun construction!  Or more precisely...de-struction!  There is an analogy here, as there are so many everywhere you turn in life.  The old must first be destroyed before the new can rise up.  Those things which were good in their time have eventually to be set aside when they are no longer conducive to our going forward in life. 
St. Paul said that when he was a child, he spoke like a child and acted like a child.  Then when he became a man, he put childish things aside.  Lent is about to begin as well as our construction.  Looks like our penance is cut out for us this year!  
After the roof, then the concrete!
