Our Lady of Calvary Abbey in Rogersville
A friend knew that I had to escape from Fredericton because I was under too much pressure.
At times it's not easy to be an Activist. The buddy suggested a retreat at - Our Lady of Calvary Abbey at Rogersville?
I heard of the Place but never been there but agreed to the suggestion.
My buddy suggested they would pick me up at Wednesday morning < 4 days > I let it known that I would make it back to Fredericton on my own.
I just told a select few that I would go away and I apologize if I missed any.
Once I return to the Capital. I didn't know that I was that popular.
It's like the old saying- You only appreciate someone once it's gone!!!
Many people were lost for News from the Fredericton Blogger!!..:P
Ok...going back to my retreat!!
We arrive at the location -
I was met by this guy -
He was a friendly dude and very polite.
I quickly went outside and told my supporters - If after I leave here and say - I forgive the Members of the Fredericton Police Force!!
Please bring me to a bar and get me back to reality!!!!
His name is Brother Leo LeBlanc he's from Memramcook!!!!
He left the Valley a very long time ago and never went back!!! He's the one you meet when you walk inside and he's in good shape for the age of 85 years old!!
Very nice guy!!!
I was given a key and told to go at the 3rd Floor for my room.
Nice view -
Looks like a Farm in the back -
Back in my room, I noticed there was no television, radio or Internet in the Building. As a matter of fact there was nobody in the area. It was very very very quiet.
I decided to read the Bible. I just laid on my bed and relax.
After being in the room for a few hours, I was told there would be a lunch for me in the kitchen.
Once there there were a few people present and I noticed there was a guy looking at me and he had a strange expression < As saying I saw this guy somewhere? >
I asked where he was from?
He answered - Fredericton!!! < But he was still starring at me >
He asked - Where are you from????
Then I answered- Fredericton!! I'm the Blogger!!!
He shouted- YOU'RE CHARLES LEBLANC???
He quickly added - There's no politics in this place!!!..lol
Minutes later he asked - Did you Cops bring you up here???..lol
I guess the guy goes there to give a helping hand but I never saw him again after our little conversation.
One guy listening to our chat was this guy -
He asked - Do you want to work???
I could read between the lines, The guy wanted some help. I gladly offered my services.
He gave been a little tour and told me that the State of the Virgin Mary was destroyed by some idiots a week earlier.
They went to this area -
Oh well....a person can't have total silence these days!!!
The statues were located in this area -
Here's a video -
But they bought the statues in this building and will fix them!!!
Pere Clovis Chiasson gave me this story -
It was Saturday Evening and I was enjoying the nice view -
Then suddenly large bells rang!!!! Scared me!!!
The people lives off the land!!
They serve two nice meals per day!!!
They grow their own apples - Pere Clovis Chiasson pride and joy!!
Used to have their own honey -
They have their own Cows -

Lots of history in this area -
Greenhouse for Tomatoes -
Hundreds of Chickens in this building!!!
Lots of swallows!!!
I went to bed and thank God for my sleeping pill because it would have been a battle to sleep with no radio or television!!!
Nice place to read!!
Of course the Priest gave me lots of books -
It was Sunday morning and the area was still quiet. I laid in bed and read the Bible.
I went for a walk and noticed this Cemetery. It's a Cemetery for the Monks!!! The area was first used by the Monks in 1902!!! They had a very hard Winter.
They were located in this area -
The Monks have a very nice view -
Another building to work in.
Monday morning the Priest asked me if I wanted to go for a ride at the City of Miramichi???

Construction at Miramichi -
Another nice view where I was staying -
A person just walk around and relax!!
Nice peaceful area but it doesn't beat Fredericton for beautiful Sunsets!!
Trying to get rid of the bugs from the Apple Trees...
Then I noticed these kittens!! I was told a few died after a mean Fox came in the area!!
Darn shame the Fredericton Police have my good camera!!!
Everyone goes to bed early...
It was Tuesday morning and still no contact with the outside world about News Events such as - Who won the Stanley Cup???
The time was 5:30am and I heard some noise outside my window so I decided to go outside and have a look???
Enjoyed my breakfast with today's News!!
I was bored so I began to work in the Garden!!!
This is what's good about this place? You go to work!!! No distractions whatsoever!!!!
I always washed the dishes and the people thanked me for it!!
I said - If I had Television, radio or internet in my room? I wouldn't be here!! I washed the dishes so what else am I going to do???
Too heavy for this guy -
Wednesday evening, I decided to escape to Rogersville!!! It was about 3 to 4 miles but I like the walk!!!
Here's something Fredericton will never see again!!
Rogersville have the sound of the Trains and Fredericton have the sounds of Emergency vehicles!!!
The message is spreading -
I haven't been here since the Acadian Congress in 1994!!!
Acadian Hero Monseigneur Marcel-Francois Richard!!
The place was close but he's buried in this area -
Monseigneur Marcel-Francois Richard gave the land to the Notre-Dame de l'Assomption Abbey and Notre Dame du Calvaire Abbey. This is the reason they exist today!!!
He even designed the Acadian Flag!!!
I was told there was a Tim Horton's in the area so I went!!
Sit down with a nice Coffee....
Once there I realized that I left the money home!!!! ARRGGHHHH!!!!!
There were some people in the area and it would have been the first time for this Blogger to panhandle!!!
Nahhh...no coffee for this Blogger tonight!!! I began my walk to the Trappiates!!!
Going back in time!!
Do the walking trails and ATV'S go hand in hand???
Soon to be a sight in the past?
More smart people --
This is the same place I'm staying in but it's for women only!!! Notre-Dame de l'Assomption Abbey!!
Shale Gas around???
Next Morning I was up early.
I opened the paper and ARRGGGHH!!!!!!!!
The devil have sneaked inside my Kingdom of God!!!!!:(
I was bored so I began working away!!! One hour later Pere Clovis Chiasson came outside to find out what I was doing???
This was the first time I took a picture that he knew I had a camera. I knew I was leaving on Saturday so I decided to come clean with my camera. He and Leo are the only ones I took pictures of.
Look what I found early in the morning in one of the outside building???
I felt like I was in Stalag 13!!!
I would finally listen to CBC but I couldn't get Information Morning in Fredericton so I had to settle for Moncton!!!
I turned around and came face to face with this -
Is this a sign??? The Monks get buried in these coffins...nothing fancy....
It was nice to chat with Brother Leo!! He's funny....
So we shouldn't be working on Sunday eh???
The little Church is attended by many people from the area at 8:00am each morning and it's very interesting to watch them Pray.....and praying they do!! Hours and hours per day....7 days per week....when they have lunch together..they don't talk...they just listen to spiral words....they pray and work away on the land....
The organist is from New Jersey!!! < Very nice guy > :)
Him and his two brothers came from the states years ago but he decided to stay...he learned to play it on his own!!
Thank God that the Fredericton Police isn't around eh??
The mean Fox returns!!!! < That's 3 times I see him >
Father invited me to a little Acadian session in Rogersville and it was nice.
Very good singer!!

I was going to leave in a few days so I made a sign. A couple was going to drive me after Moncton to the cut off to Fredericton!!!
Pere Clovis Chiasson let me a little gift!!!
That was nice of him...:)
Time to work the Garden!!!!
This guy was waiting for me!!
Shoot!! Forgot his name but ..Christopher!!!!! He's from New York and comes up twice per year to relax and escape everything!!! He's a Liberian and we had a good chat about 9-11...very sad...:(
I forgot one little story. On my first day of helping Clovis Chiasson outside. I noticed this 74 years old man was very hyper and jumping all over the place but no Mosquito was bothering him while they went on a full attack against the Blogger!!
WHY DID GOD MAKE MOSQUITOES ANYWAY????
I guess these little pain go after Sinners and leave the Saints alone!! God just want to give you a hint of how Hell is like!! one million time worst than the Mosquitoes!!!
This is a way the Monks makes a few bucks to survive.....
Then once in a while I would get paranoid like I believe the R.C.M.P. were coming to get me!!!
Then we were working away......
Suddenly someone tapped my on the shoulder. At first, I believe it was the R.C.M.P.???
But it was a guy from my hometown of Memramcook.
He and his wife bought my Uncle and Aunt to see me!
They have heard many stories of my battles with the police via the media but they wanted to hear it first hand!!!
Small world because my Aunt found out that Brother Leo LeBlanc were relatives.....
Showed them around!!
After over one hour of chatting they decided to go home and feeling better after they heard my side of the story.
I was suppose to leave on a Saturday but a couple was leaving so I decided to hitch a ride with them!!!
This guy arrive at the same think as me and decided to paint the fence of the Cemetery!!
They sell great items!!!
I decided to attend my last Church service with the Monks!!!!
Listen to them sing!!
Click below -
Brother Leo LeBlanc reads the Bible -
I was an old photos in this area of 100 people celebrating the 50th year of the Trappiates...50 years they all dead!!!
Life is a VERY shot ride!!!!
ALL READY TO GO HOME!!!!!
After such a religious week? Why not buy a ticket????
I thanked all the people and left Rogerville!!
The couple drove me till the cut off to Fredericton and I thanked them very much and it was nice that I made new friend.
I'm much more relax and nothing could go wrong!!!
15 seconds on the side of the highway, I came across this!!!
Listen to the video -
The guy went to check my driver's License.
I told his other partner that a fine of 172.00 id unacceptable!!!! I am going to tell the Premier in person when I see him!!
He looked surprised and said - You know the Premier???
Of course I do!!! Your partner is going to hear some interesting thing in that radio!!!
Minutes later, he came along and gave me my license.
I said - Anything interesting in that radio...
He looked me over and said- Just stay away from the ground of the New Brunswick Legislature!!
I quickly went for my camera and said- Let me take a picture...they said - Nooooo!!!
I did anyway!!!
I said- If I keep this up? I'm going to get that fine!!!
The cops quickly jumped in their cruiser and left!!!!
I waited for a ride for a one hour and finally got a ride and he droved me to my house!!
I got to Fredericton and my welcome committee was waiting!!
It was a fantastic experience and I feel safe knowing there's a very dedicated group of people or Saint at the Trappiates at Our Lady of Calvary Abbey at RogersVille praying very hard for us Sinners!!
They all heroes and must be congratulated for a jon very well done in protesting us!!
I would urged anyone who's down on life to go there and trust me you;ll fell better!!!
I left my email and told them if they wanted me in the fall? I'll take the trip to that Monastry again!!
If you need to be alone and get away from it all??? Go at the Trappiates at Our Lady of Calvary Abbey in RogersVille!!!
They will welcome you with open arms!!!..:)
It was great and I wish to thank my supporters!!!..:)
