Ite bloggus est, alleluia, alleluia.


Well, this is it. Tomorrow I will be leaving for the monastery in Norcia.

I will just say that the blog won't necessarily die, it will go dormant for now. Maybe in the future it can be started up again. Even though I cannot blog in the monastery, I will leave it up as a source for translation comparisons and quirky humor. It's been a fun three years.

Again, I ask for your prayers and will be praying for all those supporting me with their prayers.

Pax et Bonum,
The Roman Sacristan

Congratulations! Your posts will definitely be missed. But, you've got more important work to do now.

I have not only enjoyed reading your blog but also have learned a great deal, especially during the past year as I have transitioned to reciting the Office mostly in Latin.

I wish you well as you begin your life as a monk. May Saints Benedict, Scholastica and all the Benedictine family intercede for you.
