Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey

April 7, 1995

Dear Chris:

It was an honor to have you with us this last week and to hear your presentation on what a forest is. Many of the monks have told me since how much they got out of your talk and appreciated your presence among us.

I write now to invite you back to spend some time with us in our forest. This is bold of me indeed to ask a gift of someone who has already been a generous donor to the Monastery! I don't know if this would be possible for you, but my thought is that we could take part of an afternoon for a walk in the forest with the monks.

Please let me know if and when this would be possible for you, Chris. I would very much look forward to spending some time with you again. You and your work and family are remembered in our daily prayer

Gratefully yours,

Peter McCarthy
Abbot
