This Christmas will be the first Abbot John Pereira OSB will celebrate without his Brothers at Mount St Benedict. He told Catholic News though he is “saddened” by this, he believes “God knows best”. “I suppose they’re pulling their weight,” he said in lighthearted tone of his Brothers at the Mount.
Abbot Pereira has remained in touch with his fellow monks since his hospitalisation last September at the Fatebenefratelli Hospital, Rome for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the left leg. In his absence Br Paschal Jordan OSB, the Prior assumed leadership.
