Life Changes Again!

A couple of months ago I was informed that the Bishop of my Dioceses was not wanting to accept my vows this coming June for the 4th year as a Hermit (one more after that and I would have been able to give permanent vows).  So, after much prayer, contemplation and looking into things, I have come out of Religious Life early and have returned to Lay Life.  In the process I have moved back to Florida, although a bit further south than the last time, now in Homestead Florida.  For now I will be living on my disability retirement from the Veterans Administration, and from my disability compensation as a disabled Veteran while I try to work out what I can do with and not adversely effect and affect my left knee, back and hips, which are why I was retired.

I do plan to continue this blog on my Spiritual Journeys, but also will have a “lay” blog at, so please keep your eye on both!!

In Christ,

    This past week I shut down my primary blog, however, I kept the domain and email services.  I was using PowWeb, which at one point was a good service, but they have gone down hill over the past couple of years, which was a partial reason I let them go. …
