I received this from the Monastery of St. Benedict in Norcia, Italy… the birthplace of St. Benedict.
Salve! [F]rom the Benedictine Monastery of San Benedetto in Norcia.
Thanks to some generous donations from our patrons, we’ve wired up our Tenebrae services and made podcasts and mp3s of everything. There also some amazing photos from a very solemn, very Latin and very awe inspiring Tenebrae service.
We’re a young monastery, with more than a dozen vocations from all over the world (and all young guys!) but with a huge amount of talent and focus on leading the Church by following Her teaching and wisdom. Also, the monks celebrate all roman rites with great reverence.
Seeing as we start at 5:00AM, it takes a couple of minutes for the monks to "warm up". There are some sick monks in the pews– please disregard the coughing. However, you will find the later parts and especially today’s service especially beautiful.
