    April 22, 1964

    The Marmion Abbey Chapter voted to accept a proposal from Bishop Melotto of the Diocese of Solola Guatemala, to establish a monastic community there and take responsibility for administration of the minor seminary for the indigenous people of that area.  The chapter voted their approval after hearing a report from Abbot Gerald, who had visited the site.

    The Beginning of the Rule of St. Benedict
    Listen carefully, my son, to the master's instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart. This is advice from a father who loves you; welcome it, and faithfully put it into practice.  This message of mine is for you, then, if you are ready to give up your own will, once and for all, and armed with the strong and noble weapons of obedience to do battle for the true King, Christ the Lord.
