This project could not have been realized without our grateful reliance upon the generosity and hospitality of others.
For their welcome throughout the dictation and editing process of the manuscripts the authors wish to thank the Franciscan Sisters of St Clare, Sr. Mary Celine Stein and Sr. Mary Patricia Reilly, along with the staff of St Clare Terrace, Milwaukee, and its Director, Margo O’Malley. For providing lodging and a quiet study in the rectory, we are grateful to Catholic Memorial High School, Waukesha, Wisconsin, and its President, Fr. Paul Hartmann.
We are grateful to Abbot Martin Shipperlee, OSB and the monks of Ealing Abbey, London, England, for their hospitality and encouragement in our writing and editing these volumes from both sides of the pond. For the monastic leisure and the resources necessary to further this project, we are grateful to Abbot Barnabas Senecal, OSB, and the monks of St Benedict’s Abbey, Atchison, Kansas.
