“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. Irenaeus community is committed to simple, joyful, healing communion with God and all creation through contemplation and the communal experience of God’s justice, love and peace in contemporary everyday life. Life at Mt. Irenaeus is centered on attending to what is primary: presence to God, others, one’s self and earth. All who participate in the mission of the Mountain join with Jesus Christ in “making all things new” by creating and nourishing a community that transcends a particular place, opening to all peoples, ages and cultures.

May 5th, Tuesday of the fourth week of Easter~ “Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer! From the ends of the earth I call; my heart grows faint. Raise me up, set me on a rock, For you are my refuge, Let me dwell in your tent forever, take refuge in the shelter of your wings.” Ps 61:1-5 🌱Psalms 61 and 62 often open my heart in the morning –And do today. After morning prayer a couple days ago, we heard a bird hit the window in the house of peace. As we went outside, Bro.Joe picked up this shaken and frightened Rosie Breasted Grosbeak. We stood together for a while as he held the bird – then placed it in the branches of the rosebush nearby, to come to it senses. ~ Later, Joe checked it out and realize that it had hurt One of its wings. but within a few hours It found its way back into the air and with the other Birds. With Ps 61: God – and we can “raise each other up” in difficult times. ... we can find together that rock on which we need to rest – Christ who is the rock; “the living stone...rejected” .... yet chosen by the father and who is our “refuge”- The One in whom, with whom we dwell for ever! 🌎🍃 Let us lift up others who are strained, frightened and need to find refuge now- In the hands and the care of another... even during social distancing! Peace! Dan ofm
