LIVE VIDEO STREAM: 9-10 Sept. Traditional Consecrations of Abbey Church and new Abbess!

Over the years, I’ve written often of the great Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, in Gower, MO near Kansas City.   They record wonderful music discs.  They make vestments. They, above all, pray for priests and bishops.   This is a traditional Benedictine community, using the traditional Roman Rite.  They have so many postulants that they will soon have to found daughter houses.

Tomorrow, Sunday 9 September and Monday the 10th mark great days for this faithful Benedictine community of nuns and for the whole Church.

On Sunday, their new monastic church will be solemnly consecrated using the traditional Pontificale Romanum.

On Monday, their superior Mother Cecilia, will be consecrated as their community’s first Abbess!

The ceremonies will be live streamed through the generosity of Conception Abbey.

Download the “worship aid” for the Consecration of the Church by clicking HERE.

These are rare ceremonies even in the newer rites, which have lost much of the depth and meaning of the traditional ways.  To be able to live stream this is a true gift.

Non nobis, Domine, non nobis!

Also, help the nuns complete all the work to their monastic complex.

You can donate in the name of priests and bishops, whose names will be engraved on a plaque on display at the monastery.

    Aaamen.

    Though I’m sure the nuns and Sydney Poitier can sing that better:

    Somewhere on YouTube there is an interview, CBS Sunday Morning maybe, with Mother Cecilia about their CDs.

    What incredible progress! What an incredible ceremony – who would ever have thought to have seen such? So glad to have supported them, albeit in a very minor way.
