Solemn Profession at Belmont Abbey

Congratulations to Dom Andrew Berry OSB on making his Solemn Profession at Belmont Abbey on Wednesday.

Abbot Paul gave an excellent homily, sharing an insightful view of Hope. We stand, as Christians, at the bus stop patiently waiting for the bus to come whilst all rush by going about their busy lives. We wait, knowing that Christ will come, and in so doing we give witness to those around us. Mostly, however, I like the notion that Br Andrew could be described as the seventh proof of the existence of God. Thank you Abbot Paul and all the monks of Belmont for a most warm welcome to your home.
