On August 10th, 2008, Brother Richard Horwell, OP (pictured at the right, with me) professed simple vows to the Order of Preachers (Dominicans). I asked Br. Richard if he could write me a short reflection about his vocation discernment, so that my readers could hear another cooperator brother's story. I just added his reflection to the cooperator brother website, so please click the link to read more about Br. Richard. By the way, Br. Richard lives in St. Louis in the same priory as I do, and it's a real joy to have another cooperator brother in the house. Please pray for brother vocations, and for our perseverance.

We in St. Louis are enjoying a deluge of rain, currently, which is mercifully making things cooler. I, for one, am ready for the chilly wind of Autumn. I love jacket weather.
