We recently mourned the death of a daughter and purchased a casket from the monks in Iowa. It was most beautifully crafted and was commented on its craftmanship and simplicity by many friends. It was obvious this is a work of love and ministry. The monks should receive as much publicity as possible to help them continue this important ministry.
