how men can live as these do here.
But a visit to the Abbey will dispel this
mystery to a great extent. Father
Cyprian, the Prior, is a man of vast
learning, but he will tell you plainly
that -they are losing this life to gain
the next. And should you who read
this ever tire of the noise and strife of
the world, a brief sojourn at Geth-

semani Abbey, with its solitude and
quiet peace, will surely bring you rest.
No one who knocks is ever refused
admittance; a clean, comfortable room
and bed are given you, with three ex-
cellent meals a day. When you leave
no board bill is presented, and the
blessings of these good men follow
you as you step into the world again.
