What is your story?

(Photo by Tammy Shoemaker, OSB)
We all have our own journey, our own story to tell. Your personal story is your history. Have you ever considered writing down your story? Your story is significant. It is in the writing of your personal story that you are able to share your struggles, challenges and victories with future generations.  A memoir for the future generations, how exciting that could be for your family to read in years to come. Today, in our computer era we do not have the personal quality of a hand written story. Instead, we create it on the computer where with a touch on the key board we can erase our personal story from future generations. Our community history, which is full of rich tradition, is preserved in several books. Two of these books are titled, With Lamps Burning and Behind The Beginnings. The latter is full of letters that were hand written. In these books is our history, it tells us about the women who made Saint Benedict’s monastery what it is today. Because they wrote their story, we know our history. As we move into the future, we are the authors of the next generation of monastic women in Saint Joseph Minnesota. If you would like more information about Saint Benedict’s Monastery please contact Sister Lisa Rose at lrose@csbsju.edu.
