Monastery Mushrooms

Mushrooms, anyone??

With all the rain that God blessed us with this past summer, we had a chance to make use of the new book about mushrooms that we recently received from Nora’s family.


I thought you all might like to see photos of some of them, especially this really huge one growing near our front entrance.

Perhaps these mushrooms are similar to some that our Holy Founder, St Paul of the Cross, might have seen as he preached to the Italians in the swamp lands where many other priests would not go for fear of diseases.

Our 2 postulants have been making a book of their own, a collection of various plants on our property.

Can one of you guess what kind of mushroom this is? We could not find it in the field guide book.
