BYOB (Bring Your Own Breviary) I'm so looking forward to this. When our friend showed us pictures of her aspirancy, the chief surprise was how many parties she'd photographed. Those nuns always seemed to be feasting amid balloons or dressing in costume for All Saints' Day or something. They have too much fun up there.
Our plane leaves so early we'll miss morning Mass at our church, and we'll arrive too late for Mass at the monastery. But a very wonderful priest agreed to say a Mass just for us at 5:30 AM. This is a sign we're spoiled.
Okay, if I go to sleep right now I'll get 2.5 hours. :)
