—missionary: by going out physically or in spirit in search of souls all over the universe.
—contemplative: by gathering the whole universe at the very center of our hearts where the universe abides, and allowing the pure water of divine grace to flow plentifully and unceasingly from the source itself, on the whole of creation.
—universal: by praying and contemplating with all and for all, especially with and for the spiritually poorest of the poor.”

Beautiful Bratislava

While playing volleyball in Germany I have met some good people, Baška is one of them. Her and her family invited me to come visit Bratislava which happens to be the capital of Slovakia. I was excited to not only see it but learn first hand from her family about their history and the city. A very inviting family, I had some home cooked meals and toured all around seeing the city for its true character. What a city, for all that it is the good the bad and the in between.


The epic stairs to the top of Bratislava’s castle. Can you see me?
