Father Mark-Mary and Brother Isaiah discuss their fascination with donkeys. Not only do these hard-working animals play an important role in a handful of Bible stories; their curious blend of meekness and courage can inspire us to take a closer look at the things in life we tend to overlook. Brother Isaiah recalls a time when he watched a shepherd and a donkey walk across a desert with sheep. The donkey had a limp, but he kept pushing on with his shepherd despite how much he clearly struggled to do so.
Father Mark-Mary reveals that this story of the donkey is the first in a series that will explore the theme of the struggler.
