3/27/99: Site "officially launched" in time for Holy Week!   Hopefully there is substance enough for a solid site already--but there's a good bit more coming!  Many more "prayers as poetry"--more prayers of the saints and poets--more images to spur prayer--and, hopefully, a "cloister walk".....Your visits and prayers deeply appreciated!   And we hope to post some of your own pilgrim's offerings as well....
