Belmont Abbey College with Candy Ferdinand.

ABBEY SPOTLIGHT ON: Cadella “Candy” Ferdinand’17
From: Kingstown, St. Vincent, & the Grenadines
Double Major: Motorsports Management, Business Management. Minor in International Studies
Involved in Altar Serving Ministry, Abbey Ambassador, International Club
“Travelling to the United States for the first time from a tourist destination island in the Caribbean only 18 miles long and 11 miles wide was the biggest change I ever made in my life. Here at the Abbey I went from knowing no one to now feeling loved and cherished by many here at the Abbey. Belmont Abbey allowed me to grow and mature mentally and spiritually in a way that I would have never imagined. I am blessed with my Abbey family and I can truly say that Belmont Abbey College is my home away from home.”

Jennifer SinclairOur priest is leading a study called "Doors of Mercy." In it, it talks about God's covenant with Noah. In ancient times, when an archer would surrender, he held up his bow, string side down. God's bow is just the same, the study taught. He holds up His bow, in complete surrender and vulnerability, to His love for us.

Lisa BrysonIt's almost Ash Wednesday. I always challenged myself and my Son to give up something until Easter Sunday. It is purely symbolic. It is a form of fasting. I usually stop eating or drinking a goodie. Everyday, you will feel better because you are doing it in honor of our Lord! Please join me? It is personal. It is anonymous? It will be a blessing to you. Discipline is necessary.

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
