Oblate Sunday, Part 2 of 4. A Benedictine oblate blog.

Part 1 is Here.

It refreshes my spirit just to see the other oblates at oblate Sunday at the abbey. Sometimes because of our schedules, I have not seen them in months.

But of course it is not just seeing the other oblates that is an encouragement to me — it is talking with them about what is happening in their lives. It is easy to talk with other oblates because of our common monastic-based practices and interests in Benedictine monasticism.

In Part 1 of this blog, I wrote that oblate Sundays gave me a sense of being part of an old tradition. But from knowing the other oblates, I also have the sense of movement into the future.

Blessings to all oblates, thank you.
