Friary with a View

This is where I stayed during much of the time I was in Australia last Fall.

Behold the Marian Friary of Our Lady Gate of Heaven in Munster, a superb of Perth, Western Australia.  This is what we call the fear of hell.  Actually, when there is no flames and smoke there really is a superb view of the Western Coast.

The friars, Father Joseph Michael, Father Andre and Friar Cyprian, all had to evacuate the building when the bush fire nearly took the friary out.  A similar fire threatened our other friary in nearby Toodyay last month.  In that disaster, our friars were also spared, but some of our friends, and others, lost their homes.  Please keep them in your prayers.
