Attention Well-Wishers

If you want to send me a care package, I need breakfast foods. I favour Kashi bars but anything that I can eat in my room will do.

I have decided I aspire to being a Desert Mother. Everyone talks about the wisdom of the Desert Fathers and there were in fact Desert Mothers. Let's see how I do.

Would you like prayer ropes and a giant column to sit on?

There's always the flagpole in front of ARCENT headquarters.

Good thing I got my big green Bible yesterday because Desert Mothers read lots of Scripture.

I attended a Lenten series about the Desert Mothers and Fathers. I remember St. Mary of the Desert.

And she was a fictional one. Her iconography in the west is now used (incorrectly of course) for Mary Magdalene. If you see a naked Magdalene in a cave wearing nothing but long hair, that's Mary of Egypt.
