60 YEARS AS A MONK
60 years ago,
the Reverend Timothy Horner, O.S.B.
was ordained a priest
in the Benedictine order
in Ampleforth, England.
Soon thereafter, he was sent to America
with 2 other monks
to open St. Louis Priory
as a new school far from England,
where he dedicated his life to teaching.
We joined Fr. Timothy in a special mass
in the church he helped build
to celebrate his life of dedication & devotion.
Hundreds of friends, families and students
(this blogger included)
helped celebrate his holy life as a monk
in St. Louis.
(At 93, he's still a brilliant scholar
and author, signing copies of his latest work,
Learning All The Time.)
Congratulations, Fr. Timothy.
