It happens every first of June. The apple tree outside the library window at Green Mountain Monastery in Greensboro, Vt., bursts forth with blossoms.
The blooms have maintained their timely schedule for the past five years, beginning the day 94-year-old Fr. Thomas Berry died. Srs. Gail Worcelo and Bernadette Bostwick recently discussed the phenomenon in a blog on the monastery’s website.
