    God Bless you, Brother David – Our Blessed Mother Pray for you.
    From – RC Deacon Brian Burns, Diocese of Lancaster and Oblate of Clear Creek Abbey, Oklahoma. I live alone and try to incorporate a degree of the eremitic into my daily life, being now ‘retired’, this is increasingly possible. Your story is a delight, be assured of my daily prayers, as I pray constantly for all hermits.
    Yours in Christ and Our Lady of Walsingham
    PAX
