Did you know that the Grotto was built in 1891, in thanksgiving for the cure of Fr. Francis Meyer, OSB, from typhoid fever?? It was also blessed as a Pilgrimage Shrine and designated for the special purpose of praying for vocations. #gotmonks #abbeylifeisgood #gotprayer #prayforvocations ... See MoreSee Less

Mary McKenna MestrezI picked up ampty jar off the ground and set it up and stuck a few dollars in it with my grandsons when we were there visiting my son who was a student there. When we came back by a couple days later, others had added money to the jar. I thought that was very cool.

Belmont Abbey College with Emma Talbot and Cameron James Baggett.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully around hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impentrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable." ~ C.S. Lewis #abbeylifeisgood

Someone we know likes Less Than a Minute to Go by our president Dr. Bill Thierfelder. Maybe you could have similar success by following the 'blueprint'!

"Less Than A Minute To Go is a blueprint for people who want to excel. Dr. Thierfelder's background and training enable him to expertly intertwine the experiences of sports and life. If you want to learn what it takes to be successful and improve your quality of living, this is the book to read." --Jerry Richardson, NFL Team Owner, Carolina Panthers
