Our Lady of the Redwoods
Please rejoice with and pray for us as we celebrate the 56th Anniversary of the Foundation of Redwoods Abbey.

We praise God with two of our founding sisters, Sr Godelieve and Sr Veronique. Our dear sisters, along with their companions from Our Lady of Nazareth Abbey, Brecht, Belgium, took to heart the words of the Prophet Isaiah, proclaimed this morning at Morning Prayer.

Your ears will heed the command from behind you: This is the road follow it.(Is 30:20)

Is there anyone here who yearns for life and desires to see good days?
(RB Prologue 15)

If you want to listen to the Lord's voice, set out on the journey, live out your search. The Lord speaks to those who search.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, October 31, 2018)

Praise God in his holy sanctuary;give praise in the mighty dome of heaven.Give praise for his mighty deeds,give praise for his great majesty.
Give praise with blasts upon the horn,praise him with harp and lyre.

Give praise with tambourines and dance,praise him with flutes and strings.Give praise with clashing cymbals,praise him with sounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breathgive praise to the Lord!Alleluia!(Ps 150)
