Please remember Br. Barnabas Brownsey in your prayers. Brother Barnabas has been back and forth to doctors’ appointments over the past couple of weeks to get to the bottom of a problem with his balance. He has suffered a number of falls in the Abbey. As you may well know from your own experience, there’s nothing like a doctor’s office during the holiday season to pick up cold germs. Given his bigger preoccupations, Brother may not have given that cold due attention; last evening he had to be taken to Winchester Medical Center where he’s being treated for pneumonia. That’s the easy part! Hopefully they’ll also discover a workable treatment for his precarious balance.
