Pastoral letter from Fr. Cyprian Consiglio

allungare pene Dear Friends of Incarnation Monastery,

pisello piccolo As many of you know we have been through a rather arduous process of discernment over the last few months concerning a new local prior for Incarnation. That process culminated in a consultative vote of the entire community in a chapter meeting here at New Camaldoli yesterday, on the Solemnity of St. Joseph. With the very strong support of the brothers, I am officially naming Br. Bede Healey as the new local prior of Incarnation. I know you will recognize Bede as a man of many talents, with a big heart and a fine mind as well. I believe Br. Bede both recognizes the need for continuity with everything that Incarnation is and has been, plus has the excitement to foster in whatever new may emerge in the evolution of our presence there.

come allungare il pene So please join me in giving Bede your full support as he begins this new ministry of service within our congregation, even as we offer thanks for Andrew’s years of faithful service and prophetic vision for our urban presence. I also do not want to neglect to mention Arthur’s years of life and ministry there, and all that Ivan has brought to us in the past years as well. The four of them constitute quite a dynamic foursome as well as a solid monastic presence in Berkeley.

pene piu lungo I hope to be up there with you all again on the Sunday after Easter to celebrate our brothers with you and sing resurrection joy. With my thanks for your friendship, faithfulness, and love for us all,

Cyprian
