Fr. Damien Thompson, on the left, is the Abbot of our monastery in Gethsemani, Kentucky. He was here for a few days a couple of weeks ago. He met with most of the monks and we enjoyed having him here. He was in Maryknoll for many years and then became a Trappist monk.
Fr. Ed Morley, in the right, is one of ours and he is from Philadelphia. We wash dishes together and I can always count on him to get me laughing with one or more of his jokes. He handles all the incoming office-related mail and does a lot of correspondence related work for the Abbot.
