Father Jean Marie Pommarès, one of the elder monks of the abbey of Flavigny is among us for six weeks. Father Prior invited him to come and share some of his vast knowledge with the novices. He is giving classes on monastic history and the psalms, along with an occasional interlude explaining the history and architecture of one or other of the Roman basilicas which he knows well from his days as a guide in Rome. He is also keeping busy helping the brothers!
