Nun Run Newz and Building Updates and Advent Hopes
They say that a picture speaks a thousand words! So let me share with you a few photos. I think the excitement will be tangible as you get a peek at all the good that is going on in beautiful Tonopah, AZ!
It’s a funny thing…this building project! I find myself getting excited over the most random things.

Of all the possible places in this world, the Lord chose this out of the way place in the heart of the Arizona desert to establish His Eucharistic Reign. It’s awesome to think of – to become ‘synced’ (to use ipod lingo) with the Providential Plans of Our Father! It’s the Advent of Our Lady of Solitude Monastery Chapel. This longing to see what has been promised (in the plans) come to fruition is reaching it’s peak as it is made manifest in reality. This Advent season takes on a whole new meaning for me. It is a time of longing, hoping, anticipating the fruition of what has been promised: A Savior. This Advent my heart is longing, hoping, anticipating the fruition of what has been promised: A place for the Savior to lay His Head…a new Home for our God. Come, Lord, do not delay…
