Quote of the day, 21 August: Kieran Kavanagh, O.C.D.

"To found a monastery where there will be only fifteen nuns and no possibility for any increase in numbers. They will practice a very strict enclosure and thus never go out or be seen without veils covering their faces. Their lives will be founded on prayer and mortification."

The Plague in Seville

"The thought [should] not even enter your mind to go to Seville, whatever may be the need, for they are definitely undergoing a pestilence down there"
