"How were monasteries funded in the middle ages? Well, by labour and
donations. It was considered important to have a monastery close by
because it provided standards, holiness, knowledge and civilization. Not
to mention the rise of healthcare, medicine and other academic
faculties and welfare. So, people cherished and valued the presence of
monks and nuns."
During last week we received two invitations. One is to actually go to England to tell about the Priory and the work and mission we do here in Karlskrona (Sweden). Another is to write an article on the same topic for a paper in Germany.
It is a great joy to have supporters and friends around the world. And
this is also a proof of recognition. So grateful! On the picture taken
in conjunction with the inauguration of the Priory in December, you find
monks, oblates and friends from England, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
