The olive harvest

Between the 29th of October and the 9th of Novembre we postulants, with the friars coming from the convent in Rome situated on the mount Palatino, gathered the olives of three different places:the first was the convent of our sister Clarisse in Montefalco; the second place was our convent of S. Fortunato and the last was the convent of S. Martino in Trevi. We usually started at 9.00 a.m. in the morninguntil the sunset, with a little break for lunch.
During this experience we had the occasion to spend time with our brothers from Rome, some of whom will be with us in the year of the “novitiate”. It was not just a work like many others, it was a very special time in which we could know better each other. We also came to know how hard it is to “earn the daily bread”, like many families do in Montefalco. Finally, we really touched the providences of God: in the huge amount of olives, in the marvelous landscapes we saw from the different places and especially in the kindness and charity of the people we met in these days.
