Maryholme Library...
Our library at Loretto Maryholme continues to inspire our many guests, both during their stay here and as they finish the last chapters at home. 

Thank you to all of you who return our books by mail, by delivery and by hand. We are putting out a call for any books still needing returned, so that our coming guests can be as blessed by them as you were... thanks so much!

New at Maryholme...
The barbecue at Blackbird Cabin is now on the extended deck off the kitchen - handy for those grilling during their stay!

Thanks, Carl, for who you are 
and for all that you do at Maryholme!

The spectacular view from the screened-in porch of Blackbird Cabin was improved by trimming some trees and bushes - the beauty from this spot continues to amaze...

Thank you, Forest Glenn, 
for your continued tree service at Maryholme!

Thoughts to Ponder...

"The miracle... is to walk on the green Earth,
dwelling deeply in the present moment
and feeling truly alive."
Thich Nhat Hanh

"Go outside.. . somewhere quiet,
alone with the heavens, nature and God.
Because only then does one feel all is as it should be."
Anne Frank

"The Sun, with all those planets revolving around it
and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes
as if it had nothing else in the universe to do."
Galileo Galilei
