Father’s Day gift idea – from the “hearts”

Seeing that, in the Novus Ordo calendar, today is the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (the day after the Sacred Heart of Jesus), I point once again your attention to the wonderful Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles whose most recent music CD is:

The Hearts of Jesus, Mary & Joseph At Ephesus

If could be a good Father’s Day gift.


Enjoy this video! You can hear music from the new disc and see shots of the new church they are building.

Also, I’ve been exchanging some emails with them about a project I have in mind.  In the last note I received Mother wrote:

We are doing a last fundraiser for the final three months of our church construction, and one of the ways people can help is to honor a priest they know and love. Or, for a priest himself to donate in thanksgiving for his priesthood – with names and ordination dates to be engraved on a plaque in the vestibule of our church. Since the holiness of our priests is the primary concern of our community, this only seemed fitting. I’ll bet we’d get lots of people who want to donate in your honor! … We will have a link up on our website soon.

That’s a lovely thought.

    “The Hearts of Jesus, Mary & Joseph At Ephesus” is a lovely CD; joyful and serene. I find myself humming along with it. Just before Fr. Z suggested it would be a good Father’s Day gift, I had purchased several, primarily to assist the dear nuns in their church building efforts. Now my family members are receiving and enjoying a little “summer surprise” gift, as well!
