For your Brick by Brick file…
I wrote in the past about the wonder CD of Gregorian chant by the Benedictine nuns of Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l’Annonciation.
I wrote about the DVD, Watchmen of the Night, the monks at La Barroux produced.
I received a note from Père Edmond that EWTN will broadcast the monks’ DVD.
They are building a new monastery, Sainte-Marie de la Garde, in south-west France.
These two Benedictine communities have lots of vocations.
There are a lot of religious orders and institutes, indeed even Benedictine monasteries, without any significant vocations.
What could the difference be?
And is it serendipity or synchronicity that my friend Fr. John Boyle just posted this: Convent experiencing “vocations crisis”!!!
