  • Exploring the Mid-Hudson Valley - Holy Cross Monastery, West Park, NY: A Benedictine Community in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church
    and so I missed Diurnum but prayed as I returned the familiar trek south on 9W I decided to stay on the west bank of the Hudson in the afternoon leaving HCM after a short lesson in Library of Congress Research with Brother Bernard for some promised assistance with his librarian tasks I traveled south on 9W into Marlboro and easily found the entrance to the Gomez Mill House thinking I was just on time for a 2 30 tour I was told the tour would not happen until later but that I could tour the house independently This house was built in 1714 and is one of the oldest continuously lived in residences in the US housing five distinct families beginning with a Jewish pioneer Luis Moses Gomez who makes this historical site the oldest surviving Jewish dwelling in North America Gomez lived in NYC but built a fieldstone trading post which was the original structure on this site Gomez was ecumenical and contributed to the steeple construction at Trinity Episcopal Church in NYC so it shouldn t feel surprising to see a page from the Gutenberg Bible on display which includes the Shema prayer shared by Jews and Christians With the waterwheel of the small mill still operational this respite off 9W took me back in time as each room displayed items from the multiple families that lived in the home including artisan Dard Hunter from the Arts and Crafts Movement social activists in NAACP and preservationists I found myself at the Benmarl Winery for a congenial tour and tasting of some New York wines on my way home to HCM for Vespers The view from the winery was spectacular to the east towards Wappingers Falls resplendent in the late afternoon sun on trees and distant quarry adding to the vintner refreshment NOTE Both tour and tasting times seem to be flexible and either can be fit into a sliver of time since they are only 20 25 minutes from the monastery Friday October 20 A driving rain and an incoming group of day retreatants did not stop me from heading to Woodstock to see the village that was pivotal to my generation s quest for love and peace Luckily a visiting community priest gave me directions to wind my way through Kingston and connect to Route 28 which is right off the NYS Thruway exit for Kingston and proceed west and then take Route 375 north into the quaint artistic and sleepy town that does not wake up and start business until after 11 AM Since I was not in shopping mode it was fine to do some window shopping in the gentle rain and to stop at the Woodstock Cafe for a lemon poppy scone and Assam tea I had learned of the chain of Bread Alone cafes at a local farmer s market near my home Had I realized how close Boiceville was to Woodstock by going further west on 28 I might have explored

  • Incense - Holy Cross Monastery, West Park, NY: A Benedictine Community in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church
    incense Standard size self lighting round briquettes Small rectangular briquettes The standard size is good for churches and other large spaces The small size is convenient for home use and smaller spaces The standard size can also be used in small spaces by breaking the briquette into pieces Lighting the coal The standard size includes a lighting agent in the charcoal This means that it can be easily lighted with a match but caution must be used hold the coal with tongs as the lighting agent burns quickly The smaller coals can be easily lighted by holding them over a candle flame also using tongs Burning the incense Once lighted put the coal in a heat proof censer You can use a metal or ceramic bowl as a censer but you should line the bottom with an inch of sand or ash for insulation The hot coal then sits on top of the sand or ash The censer should be placed on a surface that can not scorch such as a tile or trivet Allow the coal to become thoroughly lighted before putting on incense the coal will generally turn white when it is hot Putting incense on a coal that is not hot enough can put the coal out and also cause the incense to smolder rather than to burn which degrades the aroma Start by applying just a grain or two of incense until you get a feel for how much incense fills your space Incense Blend 1 5 Ounce 1 2 Pound Pound Pure Frankincense 5 12 22 Sancta Crux 8 20 35 Santiago 10 25 45 Saint Augustine 8 20 35 Saint Benedict 8 20 35 Sampler Pack 1 5 oz of each of our four blends 25 Charcoals Standard Sized Box of 100 briquettes 22

  • Calligraphy - Holy Cross Monastery, West Park, NY: A Benedictine Community in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church
    These online pictures are offered to suggest Roy s craft calligraphy is best appreciated on actual paper and at its intended size Roy s calligraphic Journey Roy first became interested in calligraphy upon encountering the book Sweet Roman Hand ed Wilfrid Blunt 1952 Shakespeare s term for Italic handwriting in Twelfth Night He did little with it for several years but in 1980 had the opportunity to study with Beva Farmer in Monterey CA and to become so to speak part of the lineage of master calligrapher Lloyd Reynolds with whom she had apprenticed In the ensuing thirty years Roy has been fortunate to study with the likes of Peter Thornton and Thomas Ingmire among others and recently completed a study year with master calligrapher Reggie Ezell a time he considers transformative to his practice In those years the joy of sharing his craft has led him to execute an extensive variety of calligraphic pieces in the form of commissions for those attracted to his work Part of the drive behind this for Roy is the engagement with creative beauty with the pleasure of creation the satisfaction of fashioning lovely things and passing them along Calligraphy has also been a practice of developing patience and self knowledge In a similar vein he has enjoyed offering instruction in the Italic letterforms to a number of students even as recently as this past January in West Park and looks forward to such workshops in the future Upon moving back to West Park Roy was delighted to find a disused room with ample clerestory windows admitting an abundance of the natural light dear to any scribe Here he installed the necessary equipment along with a night blooming cereus for good luck On any given day he is likely to be found for a
