I got down to Holy Archangels Monastery later on in the morning on Thursday, got settled in, and found Fr. Michael, who put me to work disassembling some scaffolding on the side of one of the buildings. After that we worked on installing some electrical conduit and various other odd jobs. Liturgy was at 6:00 AM so we tended to be asleep early, which was fine by me. I got some reading in as well, plus plenty of prayer time, before I left on Saturday. I’m glad I spent some time there, it was just what I needed to recharge.
