There is fantastic coverage of the 15 August ground breaking ceremony with His Excellency Robert W. Finn, Bishop of Kansas City-Saint Joseph, for the first building of the Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus, the future home of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles.

    That is the fanciest shovel I have ever seen. On a more serious note, it is so beautiful to see nuns looking like, well, nuns (and the priests looking like priests for that matter).

    They sing like the angels, too.

    Can you just imagine the “spin” John Allen over at NCR would put on this event?

    I really liked seeing “real” nuns as well. What a testament to be seen in habit to ones devotion to our Lord.

    I got to go to Mass several times last week at the Fathers of Mercy’s Chapel of Divine Mercy where Bishop Finn was giving a retreat.

    The Chapel is awesomely beautiful.

    That’s a stunning cope and mitre! Thanks for posting this wonderful news. Tom

    Isn’t “Sister” Chittester, allegedly a Benedictine? She will be grieved that young, holy women would actually want to be nuns instead of glorified social workers or left-wing activists. Tom

    I am so thrilled for these good sisters. Besides their CD (and I look forwward to the next one), their vestments and altar cloths, etc., are beautiful, lovingly made, and a prayer goes into every item they make. I hope people will support them in any way possible.

    What good-looking vestments. Way to go!
