For Thanksgiving, a local farmer butchered 4 of his own turkeys and brought them to us fresh. This was indeed a treat as we only eat meat on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Donations have been abundant in these days from parishes and individuals alike, some bringing their gifts in person to present them, like CitizenGo. Gifts in kind have also been a blessing. A new container chapel, kindly given by the Association Umanitaria Padana, arrived yesterday. Starting next Sunday, the chapel will make it possible for us to offer Mass on the monastery grounds (San Benedetto in Monte) for the few brave souls still remaining in Norcia, providing immediate benefits to locals and to allow us to start getting back, if only a little, to normal.
