St Benedict says that the Monks should be “as busy as bees in the honeycomb” and that is exactly what has happened these past few days here in Collegeville, MN where I am participating in a seminar study on young adults and vocation. This is the back wall of St. John’s Abbey which has taken that honeycomb image to new and beautiful heights. The Collegeville Institute is our sponsor and a bunch of people from different denominations have gathered to discuss vocation, not neccessarily in the usual parlance of religious life, but rather we have discussed vocation in broader terms.

How am I to live? And how will I make those decisions on what I will do with my life? Do young adults explore this and with whom?

I’ll have a bunch of questions regarding this in upcoming days for you, dear readers, to weigh in on. But know that this ha been good reflective time for me and for us collectively to explore the questionsnof vocation. And it ain’t hard to get in that mode here. Some breathtaking shots are below:
