The Odd Feeling

3-ff-01-10-dale-rogerson2It was Johnathan’s first morning in the monastery, not even a novitiate, yet he was beginning to feel he’d found his vocation. Once he donned the robe and sandels of a Franciscan Brother all the Friars called him Brother Johnathan, and he felt at home.

25-friaryThis morning he set his alarm extra early, wanting to get to the chapel early to say a few private prayers before the others got there for Morning Prayers. He did feel a bit uneasy when he encountered modern hallways, always thinking that a Monastery should be made of cold stone, not modern and carpeted.

A little one for today’s Friday Fictioneers – January 20, 2017.

    Isn’t that true about so many aspects of modern life it clashes with our perception of what it should be. i.e. guards outside Buckingham Palace with modern weapons.

  6. It would seem strange to some but I used to go to a church in the U.S. that was built in the Swedish modern style. There were no Stations of the Cross along the walls and the parishioners complained. Good writing, Mike. 🙂 — Suzanne
