You may recall that the late and great Extraordinary Ordinary, Bp. Robert Morlino, who died too early last November, consecrated the new Abbess of Gower Abbey in Missouri. These are the wonderful Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles who make the lovely music recordings which I often raid for my podcasts.
I just received from St. Joseph’s Apprentice the maker of the beautiful portable altars – the ultimate priest gift – a photo of the missal stand that he made for the nuns, with a memorial inscription.
We use one like it at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff.
I am so glad that the nuns have this wonderful missal stand. You may not be able to tell, but the top part with the book swivels, while the base remains in place. It’s great for adjusting the angle of the missal.
Also, I am trying to persuade St. Joseph’s Apprentice to make us a Tenebrae Hearse. He says he has a lot of work to do. So, dear readers, please say a prayer to your Guardian Angels to gang up on him and persuade him that it would be the best thing in the world to make our hearse.
Meanwhile… calling all Catholic carpenters. Need some work? I have some projects that must be done.
Drop me a line. HERE
