“Making All Things New!”
We believe we are one with all peoples, cultures and creation in the ancient longing to find and to live in peace.
Rooted in the Franciscan tradition, the Mt.

Life at Mt. Irenaeus is centered on attending to what is primary: presence to God, others, one’s self and earth.

Young Maples line this road and, lean into the center ready for spring’s sun to enter. Each reminds me that our life, whatever our age, has just begun. Having traveled many of life’s roads before this one- Still- the question opens fresh for me today- wondering; what’s here, “will I meet another car coming around the bend?” Who and what we greet is not only “along the way”- all, everything somehow enters us and together- as we are one we become the New Day. Christ stands tall beside us like these trees, and as the Son, and in the freshness of this one day we receive the Spirit’s breeze; to enjoy and travel well all roads before us- And be ready to see bends in the road as unexpected friends; places to open our eyes and begin our lives again. #theway #theroad #lifespath #lifesway #oneness #christ #inhimweareone #stfrancisofassisi #peace #bendsintheroads
