M is for Monastery

Yep, I'm talking about the place in Conyers where I love to walk.  I even love to meditate there.  It's a place I go to and forget that I'm in Conyers.  It's so peaceful and the Lord really does move there. 

I've seen the monks do vespers from time to time.  Last time I even crawled into the nave and sang with them.  The thing I really love about Catholics is their art and their meditation techniques.  I do disagree that monastic living should be 24/7.  It should be once a week.  That's why God created the Sabbath.  However, I do like that they allow the public to come and retreat, that there is always a place to go for free and just work on homework or read or pray.  I'm so thankful for the monastery.
