Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará

Getting the most out of your Summer!

He is not only idle who does nothing, but he is idle who might be better employed.

Rest is an important necessity for all people. Physically, mentally, and spiritually we have limitations and should have time and ways to recharge, relax, and unwind. The "need for celebration is inherent in our humanity"(Bl. John Paul II, Dies Domini 1998, 4) and with classes out and longer days ahead, you may find yourself with some extra time on your hands. This summer is the perfect opportunity to read a good book or enjoy a summer movie with friends and family. Below are a few recommendations.
