The Rising of the Sun!

Share with your friends on Facebook

As a pilgrim walks along a road he sees some men working on a stone building. 

“You look like a monk,” the pilgrim said. 
I am that,” said the monk. 
“Who is that working on the abbey?” 
“My monks. I’m the abbot.” 
“It’s good to see a monastery going up,”
said the pilgrim. 
“They’re tearing it down,” said the abbot. 
“Whatever for?” asked the pilgrim. 
“So we can see the sun rise at dawn,” said the abbot.

What monastery do YOU need to tear down from this past year so that YOU too can see the sun rise at dawn in 2022?
