Fr. Hugh Assenmacher, OSB

In your generosity, our monastic community would appreciate your prayers for our confrere Fr. Hugh Assenmacher, OSB. Last night in the rectory in Altus, AR, Fr. Hugh apparently fell and hit his head. He was found this morning with severe bleeding in the head and is presently in a Fayetteville Hospital. Tests revealed there was no sign of a stroke, but the situation is extremely serious and grave. The next 24 hours will determine the severity and whether surgery will be warranted or is even possible. In chapter 4 of Saint Benedict’s Rule for monasteries, our patron followed the spirit of other ancient monastics and did not try to suppress thoughts of death and last things. Benedict says simply, “Remember to keep death before your eyes daily.” Fr. Hugh lives his monastic life mindful of this, so we brother monks entrust the outcome of this situation to God in whose hands we have consecrated the entirety of our lives. Thank you for your prayers! UIOGD!
