The superb traditional Benedictine nuns in Missouri, famous for their music CD’s and for their fine vestments, have begun the last phase of building their chapel.
The community is dedicated to prayer for priests. From their site:
Having received our call to emulate Our Lady in her final, hidden years, we offer our lives in prayer and sacrifice for priests. These are the new apostles of the Church who bear her truth to the world. We anticipate the coming of the Lord as Our Lady anticipated her Assumption, singing the psalms as she did, until we are admitted into the life of endless praise that is to come. In the meantime, we extend customary Benedictine hospitality most especially to priests, our spiritual sons, and strive to offer them the spiritual refurbishment so often denied them in their zealous work.
Here is your ACTION ITEM! From their site, how they will raise funds to complete their church.
Give tribute to a priest who has been an instrument of grace for you or your loved ones through our Ad Altare Dei board. Or, if you are a priest, consider making a gift in thanksgiving for your priesthood.
Each priest’s name will also be engraved on a plaque in the vestibule of our new church.
The image came to mind of 1 Peter 2 which likens us to “living stones” which build the Church. In this case, the intentions of priests are the final bricks that go into the building of the chapel in which they will pray for priests.
BTW… if any of you want to collaborate for a plaque just put the name of the same priest in when you make your donations.
Choose any priest you want. Remember, however, that the proper spelling of his last name will always be: Z-U-H-L-S-D-O-R-F and his ordination date was 26 May 1991.
You can donate online or send a check. Please look at their site and let other people know about it?
This is a great project.
