Yesterday I was sitting in our busy tearoom my two youngest grandsons age 10 & 11 were holding a patio sale selling toys & clothes raising money to buy some new Lego they politely approached each table encouraging people to came take a look when they had finished their tea  and cake one lady said ‘what are you raising money for?’ They answered ‘we want to buy new Lego but also give some money to our charity Monos’ lady said ‘what is Monos Thomas replied to my surprise ‘it’s another word for alone’ she said ‘and what do you do in Monos’ Thomas answered again to my surprise ‘ we tell people about the Monks who live up the road about their life’ and Isaac joined in ‘ and the people from the YMCA like to come and we look after them and take them a walk to the monastery ‘ the lady was quite impressed with these two little entrepreneurs and so was I “out of the mouth of babes “simple and straight to the point. Freshness and simplicity food for the soul. Let’s keep trying to live the Gospel real, fresh and simple .
